Exactly and the hardest question for me is WHY OPTOMETRY because there’s a lot of cliches out there eg help people and I want to sound unique there aren’t even personal statements out there

I'm having the exact same troubles with my personal statement!! With me I'm not even sure if an Optometry degree is what I want to do (it's one of my top options) but I'm still confused

Honestly we’re all applying for the same reasons really so it’s hard not to put the reason without being a bit cliche unfortunately. But I get you I’m having the same problem I feel like my intro is just like any other intro they’ll read hahah

Hey guys, my advice on the personal statement is that it is meant to be exactly that- personal. So make sure the admissions tutor reading it gets a sense of who you are as that is what will make it unique to you. Here is a link to some sample ones:

https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wik...nal_Statements

When you do send it off let us know where you're applying and with what grades. Also don't worry if you haven't started yet the deadline is 15th January 2019 for 2019 entry.

What work experience has everyone got? I’m a bit worried as i want to submit my application early to increase my chances however I still haven’t got my shadowing placement at specsavers yet as the optom director hasn’t answered yet so so far I’ve only got shadowing a consultant at the hospital and hospital volunteering at the children’s ward...

When do you think you’ll get it done? And also when is everyone thinking of submitting their application? I wanted to send mine off quite early but I can’t finish my personal statement until after I finish all my work experience ahah
