I'm in year 11 and i have to fill in my ucas progress. i want to become a vet so for my a- levels i want to do are biology, chemistry and English literature/language. i really enjoy learning about them however i do find it slightly hard to learn despite this i am really passionate about theses subjects and becoming a vet would a great stepping stone. for my personal statement i do not know what to say(i don't really go anywhere and i haven't done anything to be proud of) and how do i make a really good personal statement as i really want to get to the college i am applying for. i know that i work really hard to get what i want. Please could you give any advice?
ucas progress , personal statement, career plans etc!!! Watch

I've just applied for medicine and take the same A Levels ☺ and well, seeing as you're in year 11, I would suggest organising experience relating to veterinary now! anything from weekly volunteering at shelters to sanctuaries would be good, or even paid work at kennels for example, because when it comes down to it, everyone applying will have the same high grades, so you need to make yourself stand out..in terms of writing the statement, you really need to get your passion across without sounding too cliche, so try to avoid things such as 'when i was younger', study what the universities are expecting from the applicants and try to weave in the qualities and demonstrate them. I'd also suggest finding a hobby, such as an after school/lunchtime sport, to prove you can still wind down. in terms of having the determination, you sound like you have it, and youre going to need it for chemistry a level because its bloody hard, but with enough effort, you can get there!! good luck!
