    Hi, do you think it is easier to get accepted for neuroscience or biological sciences? I know it is maybe a stupid question, but I´m not sure whether I should go for more general subject like biology or to try more specialized thing like neuroscience
    Im applying mostly to Scotland, so I can choose either of those subjects further during my studies
    Thanks!

    If you meet the entry requirements you'll be fine. If you're unsure about where your interests lie pick something general like biology.

    I am mostly scared because of the personal statement.. I am not from UK and not used to writing PS.. So you think there is no difference between the chance getting accepted to biology and neuroscience?

    No difference. Your PS needs to reflect why you want to do the course and what you've done to develop your interests in the subject and be specific to what you're applying to study.

    Thank you! and also can I have a few questions connected to the PS? I already did a research should I also write in the PS some contact to the person who was in charge or not?

    No please don't mention any unis or names in your PS. You have one PS for five unis and unis know that so it comes across as empty flattery.

    And also I wonder whether I should include some contact information for clubs I participated in etc. so that the uni can confirm whether my information is true and I´m not bull****ing them?

    No. Your PS should only be about your academic interest in the subject. Extra curriculars can be in a short para of about 100 words with a focus on relevant transferable skills.

    Thank you again! And what if people cheat on their statements and make up whatever they want??
