    There are SOO many threads on this...

    Go and read the stickies and the wiki articles, and type 'how to write a medicine personal statement' into google.

    And when you've done a draft, ask the PS helpers to read it over for you.

    Also, have you never heard of work experience? Kind of a major part...

    Don't forgot, quality over quantity. What you've mentioned seems good so far, but you need work experience in a medical workplace, so the admissions tutors know that you know what being a doctor is REALLY like. Don't just list what you've done like how you just did, pick a few good things and develop on them explaining how they helped you and why they make you a good applicant. If need be leave some things out and use them as extras to talk about in interview.

    You don't seem to have much actual medical work experience. And it's not about what you've done but how you write about it. As has already been said, please read the stickies before asking any more questions - this is your third thread today.
