I want to do Psychology as a university course, and want to apply to Oxbridge. I'm having difficulties relating my A-level subjects to the course I want to apply to (My A-levels are; Chemistry, Biology and English Literature). I am aware I can make links between English Literature and Psychology but I am so confused as to how I can interlink Biology with psychology or Chemistry with Psychology. I need help and assistance ASAP as 15th Oct is approaching soon so, there's a deadline I have to meet. PLEASE ANYONE HELP.

p.s. Has anyone filled out or have heard of an extenuating circumstance/Mitigating circumstance form you also send off with your personal statement. If you have, please let me know asap.
I am really desperate!

You don't necessarily have to relate your A-Levels subjects to your university subject. What a personal statement should do is show why you are applying for the subject and how you have demonstrated your interest, and also what makes you a stellar candidate (e.g. academic achievements, prizes and certification outside of school, positions of responsibility...)

You can always consult your teacher for more guidance, and advice on submitting extenuating circumstances with your application. Once you have written a draft, you can submit privately to the Personal Statement forum on TSR where you will receive good feedback.

It's important that you don't post it anywhere publicly on the internet, because then the UCAS plagiarism filter may pick it up and think you copied yours from online.

Be careful and good luck with it. (I can't give you much advice on the PS itself for those subjects I'm afraid)

Biological Psychology for one, and relate it as a whole as another Science.
