    I'm applying for medicine with a foundation year and I am still stuck on my personal statement. I do Chemistry, Biology and Psychology at alevels and I have no clue how to link them to medicine.
    I mean I know how they link but I don't know WHAT to write?

    Medicine applicants normally talk about these subjects as their academic hobbies and subjects. Tell me what is different about chemistry and biology, and how does this link with medicine. For example maths involves problem solving skills and GP will.need that each time he is discussing an issue with his patient , GP will need to.solve the problem of the patient.

    This is in the wrong forum. Bradford clinical sciences is not medicine with a foundation year, it has a transfer scheme at the end of the first year to Leeds medicine, which is very competitive, and you are not guaranteed progression into Leeds medicine.

    In addition, I would avoid talking about your a levels in your personal statement, especially for medicine. Most applicants for medicine are doing the same a levels, so it would be pointless to talk about them as everyone has to go through them. Better to talk about work experience/volunteering/extra-curriculars
