    What subject are you apply for?. To begin with try to think of why you want to study your chosen subject. Think about what interests and qualities you have that make you suited to study the subject. Could you try and get some relevant experience? even if its just a week or so.

    I struggled writing my psychology personal statement last year too! Some ideas for things to include might be why you're interested in psychology/how your interest started, what modules you are interested in studying at uni & why, how your current subjects will help you at uni eg English may've improved your written communication skills & I mentioned work experience as well and made it relevant eg working in a nursery enabled me to notice how children thrived from individual attention... Hope this helps try not to worry about it too much, mine took me ages! Maybe ask teachers for feedback too, good luck!

    You need to explain why you want to study the subject, what your specific academic interests are and what you've done to get a better idea of the field. Try our PS Builder tool (see my sig).
