    I'm currently applying to study Psychology at University, and I am finishing off my personal statement. However, I am struggling to describe how my other A Levels link and improve my Psychology skills; specifically Drama.
    I have written something about interpreting behaviour, but I feel it's very forced and detracts from the flow of the statement. But then I feel like I need to reference all my A Levels. Should I keep it in or leave it out?

    You don't need anything on amy of your A Levels - the admissions tutors will know roughly what you cover and what skills you gain. What they do want to read is the more unique stuff to you - interests in psychology outside of college. Look at the PS building tool and the psychology specific guidance linked to in my signature below for more information
