I am in the process of trying to leave my current course, 1st year has just finished but I haven't attended lectures for 7 months due to mental health problems and I haven't sat any exams.
Now my course is Social Sciences, which includes psychology, but I don't really like it. I want to go for courses that are just psychology. the BA (Hons) Psychology course. I am genuinely passionate about psychology and have read a lot of books on the subject throughout my teens, I'm 18 now. I particularly enjoy the clinical and criminal aspects of psychology.
I don't know how to even start my personal statement, as I'm aware everything I actually want to say will sound like a cliche- "I have been interested in psychology for years" etc.
I want to get across that I genuinely want to take psychology further as a career, but I have no idea how to begin.
Any advice would be appreciated.
