I disagree, but I don't think you have to put your "skills" write about your skills from your other a-levels etc. Seems pointless to me as a lot of these skills are obvious.

Yes, as long as it would help in the area you are applying for. I used chess in mine, saying it helps improve my analysis skills.

For what course?

I think there is no point writing about analytical skills, because most subjects have analytical skills and if you have A or B that already shows analytical skills :holmes:

It was for physics. That was the only skill I put, other than the fact that I am naturally curious.

You don't need to write about what "skills " you've gained from your A levels. They're either obvious (so a waste of space) or tenuous (so a waste of space).

Teachers recommend this crap to applicants who have nothing else to talk about.
