    I'm not sure if I should or not. Do admission tutors take it as a negative?

    Can you link it in any way to the subject your applying to? It's definitely possible if your applying to a history political type subject but I don't see how it would be relevant if you were applying to Chemistry for example.

    I think you will have to steel yourself to do so. The PS should be about physics and your interest in it. Your circumstances should be vouched for by your referee as an independent corroboration of them and I'd imagine that if you are applying through a school or college they will already be aware of them.

    Your teacher will ask you if you've had any extenuating circumstances when he's writing the reference. Mine did and I told him about my issues and also universities are understanding as well.
