    Hi

    I was wondering what I am meant to put in the extra personal statement part in the SAQ if I'm applying to Medicine. Do I write about why I like the traditional course etc?

    Also will it influence anything when it comes to deciding interviews?

    Thank you

    The extra personal statement is optional, so if there isn't anything you want to mention you should leave it blank. You could write what you like about the Cambridge course, but usually it used by applicants for subjects like NatSci because they for example apply to single science courses elsewhere.
