    Hello,

    I have a few questions concerning personal statement

    Do I have to include any book? If my wider reading is from different websites and online courses and a trip, would that be alright because I cannot find a suitable book for the topic(nuclear fusion) for my level.

    Also, is it okay if I concentrate on a single topic in the personal statement? In my case, I am applying for Physics, and I am particularly interested in nuclear fusion. So is it possible for me to only discuss about nuclear fusion and ignore other topics in physics? ( I would still include relevant work experience and super-curricular and contests)

    Thank you

    As long as the reading you did is academic in its focus, it should be fine. However, I would write about an interest in another area of physics (and make sure that all your choices cover nuclear fusion)
