    Seriously, my dd didnt start her PS until beginning of Oct and it was good enough to get her 3 interviews. Most important is to look carefully at the unis you wish to apply to and see what they want to read in a PS. Also, after you have done your UKCAT it might rule in/rule out some of the unis.

    Yes you need to look really carefully at what they say they are looking for . Once you get started with writing it you will find the problem is that you want to use far more words than you are allowed! Before you get to PS stage there are uni open days and UKCAT to prepare for.

    I think it's best that they dont change it too much as the admissions team want to get to see what you are like.
