Shall I put it on the CAF?

Shall I quote the books I read on the additional personal statement? My teacher told me not to (he is unsure about it), he said only put y u like the college or subject. Then I asked him, so how do they know how much I read, he said he dunno. :confused:

I put books in my UCAS personal statement. I don't suppose it would matter if you put it on the CAF though - if you want them to know about it (they might ask you about them) then it seems as good a place as any. I think I put a little about why I loved the course and the college on my CAF. Good luck! :smile:
The books I read went in my personal statement and then they asked about them again in the Supplementary questionnaires...(don't know if all colleges/subject send these out). I think the box in the CAF is more about why you would be suited to Cambridge?

Don't comment on your college choice, as you might get pooled. Something broad about Cambridge in relation to the course might be good though - that's what I'm doing.
Seconded - they don't need you to tell them how great you think their college is. They don't need any persuading... Give them more passion-for-subject type stuff.

NB: If you don't write anything at all in that particular box, it will not harm your application in any way. :smile:
