    How do I tackle a PS when applying for Physics? My knowledge of physics is limited and I want to study it because I find it interesting but I ultimately want to end up in data analysis. How do could I explain this and make the connection between the two? Is it acceptable to imply that I don't want a career in physics?

    Currently studying an Access to HE course with modules in maths, physics and chemistry and doing A-level maths in one year.

    You don'tr need to talk about career plans as they may change. You need to show an academic interest in the subject and talk about how you developed it using specific examples.
