    So I have submitted my UCAS for medicine, and i have applied to Imperial, UCL, kings and St georges.
    i was happy with my personal statement and many teachers and med students said it was very good, and I made it very sciency since medicine is a science course.
    however, I have just see that Imperial (my FAVOURITE UNI) really focuses on extra curricular, but I wrote my personal statement mainly on academic qualities. I even took out the sentence about my cycling
    I feel so dumb. I can't call my ucas back because it has gone to universities. Will imperial even consider me at all since I didn't include my extra curriculars, which include cycling and drawing.
    however, i did include things like being a prefect and young enterprise and my part time job, would these count as extra curricular?
    please help

    They won't care if you smash the BMAT. You can talk about it in your interview but you have to do well in your BMAT

    If your teachers mentioned your extracurricular activities in your reference then you should be fine.

    Can't tell if serious or satire.

    If serious - don't be silly, it'll be fine. You won't get rejected because you didn't talk about cycling or any other extra-curricular in your PS, that's not how it works.

    If satire - don't give up the day job.

    Im being serious. why would i joke about this.
    and Im not being silly, the reason I am concerned is because extra curriculars are so important to this uni!

    If the rest of your personal statement is amazing then you could hopefully talk about it in the interview.
