Pharmacy Personal Staement help ??! watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, Im currently writing my personal statement for pharmacy and I feel like it is very rushed and not in a high standard. I know how competitive this course is so I was wondering if anyone is able to help me with this as Im applying to top universities with not the best AS grades (BBCC). I also had some hospital work experience which I don't know how to relate to pharmacy and I might apply to one Optometry course so I want to talk about that too.
    Anyway I will really appreciate if anyone experienced can have a look, thanks.

    Read the personal statement that comes with pharmacy job adverts 'what we look for in a candidate.'
    Mirror that language in your statement.
    Add lots of examples from your real life and hospital expetience. Talk about examples where you overcame barriers, reserched, applied and acheived. Include things from outside pharmacy that still relate to core skills, like prioritising work or deligence.

    With low grades, you need something that makes you interesting and appealing.

    Mention your goals and how you want to acheive them.

    Proof read, spell check and punctuate it to death!
