    Hey, so I'm attempting to write the first draft of my PS and am just so stuck as to what to put into it.

    I've only recently come into my chosen career path so haven't don't anything extra-curricular to assist me with it, likewise my education history is really messed up!!

    I did my first year of A LEVEL and then dropped out... didn't gain anything... I then did a BTEC Diploma in architecture and dropped out after the first year.... I'm now hoping to go down the law route, I'm studying on an access course at the moment to get me the grades I need for uni.

    I haven't really done anything!!! What else do I put into it? I've talked about my interest in the subject and the course i'm currently studying. I did the 'NCS' service so put about that into it, and have spoken about my current retail job and that I care for a disabled person....

    WHAT ELSE CAN I PUT INTO IT???

    Please help!

    Its difficult to say when we literally know nothing about you, but make sure you link each point to why that should help you on the course and how it shows the dedication to your subjects. There are many useful websites that go into this in greater detail such as this one... http://university.which.co.uk/advice...onal-statement

    You've got time to read things before applying - focus on that to talk about in your PS

    How sure are you you want to do law? You seem to change your mind a lot.

    :ditto: agreed. I think that needs to be something you, Rhystolson, get down on paper by yourself. Then use the PS Builder tool we have on TSR.

    I know that I have changed my mind a lot, but honestly when you ask an 18 year old what they wan't to do for the rest of their life, can you honestly give just one specific answer? I've finally decided on this course, and i'm putting so much into it! I just hope I can prove that this is actually the path I'd like to go down.

    10s if not 100s of thousands don't have 1 false start never mind 2. You need to really think hard and be sure, because you won't do well on a law degree by accident

    If you've literally done nothing, lie. Say you've visited courts and done work experience.

    Better yet though, actually do something. There's still time to read a book or visit a court.

    What we were all thinking but none dare say. Good show.

    Though don't do this for training contracts...
