    Your personal statement is for positive things. An E isn't positive. You need to talk about why you want to study this course, and again the E won't really fit in.

    You dont need to talk about AS level grades at all in your PS.

    Concentrate on answering the question 'I want to study this subject at University because......'.

    No. That is a waste of the limited space you have.

    Law doesnt ask for specific subjects - all they want is mega-high grades, a focussed PS - and LNAT.
