    Try working your way through the TSR PS tool: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/per...ake_some_notes it will help you work up from notes to a full PS and then give you some automated feedback when you're done.

    http://university.which.co.uk/advice...ysics-students is worth a read and http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3986251 has some suggestions for further reading

    Funnily enough, TSR has just produced a new guide for personal statements which includes specific advice for Physics applicants. Have a look - hope it's useful.

    Good luck with your application.
