I'm applying for physiotherapy and I'm trying to send my application off but my college won't let me yet because I haven't talked about all my a level subjects in my personal statement. For those who have sent their applications off, is it necessary to write about every single a level subject you're studying? Please help as it's quite urgent.

If anything you shouldn't really mention them at all since they are else where on your application and it's just wasting precious space.

That's exactly what I've been trying to tell them. I'm doing 2 sciences and English literature and they're expecting me to waste words by talking about English which has nothing to do with physiotherapy...

I would confront someone of authority at the school and say you aren't happy the way it's being handled, at the end of the day it's YOUR piece of work. Goodluck with what ever way it goes, but you can ask most of the PS helpers around here they would advise you didn't do it

Show them this: http://university.which.co.uk/advice...erapy-students and this: http://university.which.co.uk/advice...-not-to-put-in

The first spells out essentials for physio PSs (no mention of A levels), the second is a list of things to avoid:
"Nor do you have to write about all the subjects or courses you are taking, unless you really want to. Statements that say 'maths has given me this, English has given me this and Spanish has given me this...' tend to come across as a bit dull and unimaginative."
