Personally I think I have left my application a bit to late but this weekend I have been trying to get everything finished or at least to a degree where everything is done and I can just go back and change a few things here and then whenever. (Which could also explain why I have created so many threads over the last 2 days (sorry))
I can waffel for England - and Its the only coursework skills that I have. I had no problems doing any of my A2 coursework. But I want to know if this is bad waffling or not.
I'm doing my personal statement - first draft. I have found a guide consisting of bullet points and I have highlighted them and typed a paragraph or two under each. Ill then take the bullet points out and then everything should flow together nicely. I have typed a lot about my A Level courses I did. Stuff like specific aspects of the Uni course that interests me based on my A Levels and examples of coursework I have completed which relate to the course I am applying for. I also did a lot for work experience in the course area and the practical work I have enjoyed.
Is talking to much about what I have done for my A Level good or bad? Nothing has been repeated and I am using loads of different sentence starts and adjectives. I nearly cried though when me synonyms tool stopped working. I figured that typing everything relevant about the course and the link to my a levels is good as I play no sport, have won no awards and do not have a job at the minute.

Careful about using a thesaurus - it can mean that words don't sound quite right or that it sounds like you're trying to be too 'clever'. It's often easy to spot those people who use one. As for a levels - generally if you have more unique stuff (work experience and extra reading) that should be the focus as that will be more interesting. It can depend on how you talk about stuff tho
