    I've just finished my a-levels and, although I got an offer for 2011 at Liverpool Uni for medicine, I didn't get the grades. So I'm reapplying to Uni next year for medicine and physiotherapy, because I doubt I'll get a place in medicine because of the competition, and the fact that most medical schools don't accept resit applicants. But I don't know how to write my personal statement about two subjects.
    Help?

    Hey. I guess there's a number of ways you could do it.

    You could try integrate the two subjects. Talk about your interests in both but talk about specific things which could be linked? ie; if you did work experience, you could say how it would suit to both fields.

    or, you could do it seperately. First half of the PS on one subject. The second half on the other.

    I am applying for international business, but for one uni I am applying for business and politics. The way I did it was focus on business, and then mentioned my other interests which is politics, so I guess that could be another way. Ie; your main interest is medicine, and you would love to study that, although you see yourself in the future as a physiotherapist. or w/e.

    I guess I could, but I dont know whether or not that would show that I'm not commited enough to medicine or physiotherapy and I won't get into either. So I thought of writing a personal statement without saying medicine or physiotherapy... Iit's proving to be quite difficult and I'm not sure if it will make my personal statement a bit thin, just talking about 'healthcare' and 'this degree course'...

    Hi, I did send my personal statement off without mentioning either subject, I did get an interview for medicine. Which I'm pretty happy about
    But the physiotherapy courses rejected me, stating that I didnt show enough knowledge of the course.
