Just follow your interests. If you want to study physics then find out more about it in your free time.

I watch a lot of videos about astronomy/physics/space on YouTube. I’m kinda afraid to put that in my because YouTube is..... not well respected (if you get what I mean)

Keep a few notes about them so you can remember what you watched, who presented, what they discussed (any specific theories/scientists?) and anything you found interesting, challenging, surprising etc. Then follow up the things that interest you in more detail elsewhere.

If you like videos then look out for lectures on iTunes U and on university websites (and BBc4 and radio 4 documentaries) on topics you enjoy.

You don’t have to include everything you do in your PS but if you have some notes and try to follow your interests but keep track then it will make writing your PS much easier. Plus you’re finding out about things that interest you and that you’ll probably study in your degree so nothing is wasted!
