    Hiya, i'm currently studying a foundation year and planning to switch uni's next september. With that in mind, how do I approach the foundation year in my PS?(Reasons for doing a foundation year, what I have gained etc?) Also my main reason for doing the foundation year was that I got bad grades. But how can I put this lightly?

    The main aim of your personal statement is to talk about why you want the new course, so your reasons for studying a previous course are irrelevant. You might want to talk about what you gained from the foundation course and why this encouraged your desire for future study - how did the foundation course lead on to you applying for the new course? Which bits of the foundation did you enjoy?

    The reason why i'm wanting to mention my excuse for studying the foundation course, as one of my choices has specifically asked for me to include a reason. While i'm not hopeful this place will accept me, I feel its worth ashot.
