    do I add my part time job and my duties there to my personal statement?
    I was going to but my friend told me to leave it as its on my ucas application, should I keep it or have my PS without?

    If you feel it is particularly relevant or you achieved something special that you wanted to highlight, you should include it. Otherwise, leave room for your other activities.

    Is your part-time job relevant to the subject?

    If not, mention it in your extra-curricular paragraph near the end of your personal statement. By mention, I mean maximum one sentence.
