    Work experience
    Other comments

    if u look through google..there sld b websites that help u 2 write ur personal statement!

    Paragraph headings
    Subject related activities - use something exciting that you've done, like i used the synthesis of asprin and mentioned how i had enjoyed it

    Sixth form activities - dont put too much emphasis on this, put a little about the area that interests you most

    Magazines/textbooks for extra reading - well i read new scientist and had read the 'general chemistry - by linus pauling' say maybe somthing that interested you or inspired you to find out more etc. you dont really read textbooks so they might think ur lieing

    Extra curricular activities - put down any general interests or things you do

    Work experience - i exagerated my work experiance, i did work exp. in yr10 at a vets and i said i did voluntary work at a vets for a short period, work experiance for chem doesnt matter

    Other comments - Be urself, i think i got my BBB offer from durham rarther than the typical AAB by being honest rarther than using lots of long words in an overly formal style
