    Hi,
    I was just wondering if anyone could give me any help with writing my personal statement for Biochemistry.

    I would love to go to Oxford university so I have to hand my personal statement into my school before friday the 6th of october due to it being an early application.

    Any help would be much appreciated thanks.

    Research the course in depth. Mention what interests/excites you about it (why you like it). You can even mention the certain modules you're particularly interested in (this shows up on the uni websites). Talk about how your subjects are relevant to your choice (if they are). Speak of any experience you have related to biochemistry.

    For Oxford you have to show that you are so interested in your subject you do further work outside your lessons - if you haven't already, find a relevant book and in your personal statement mention what you found particularly interesting in it. You could also do a free online course on a site like Futurelearn - I have done 'Everyday Chemistry' by York and that was a good course.

    that being said you probably don't have time to read a full book/complete a course in two days! if I were you I would have a quick look over the course/book and find bits of it that look interesting, write about them in your statement, then make sure you complete the full book/course before your interview!

    Best of luck with your application
