    Hi, I'm having difficulty at the moment to organize my personal statement into paragraphs and also just want some general ideas as to what i should include in my personal statement.
    Also, could someone tell me what would be better, either doing BTEC in College or A levels if i want to do Pharmacy/Optometry

    Is this personal statement for university admissions? If you're not sure whether you're doing BTEC or A Levels yet, I can't see why you're writing a personal statement...

    I had to write one informally to get into my school's sixth form. I don't think it's anything special, really. Just talk about why you want to go there, what you do in your spare time, what you'd like to do in future (pharmacy/optometry).

    Pharmacy - you need to do A levels. I wanted to do pharmacy until recently after finding out I didn't like it when doing work experience. You'll need an A level in chemistry.

    optometry idk

    I've ended up applying for Economics and Geography so...

    Look at entry requirements to work out what you need to apply to both courses. For a college PS you need to talk about what you're interested in studying and why, what you career plans are, why that college and what you can bring to college life.
