I'm applying for zoology and I work in a fish and chip shop. I heard some unis particularly look for whether somebody has a part- time job or not to see if they're just living off their parents, but my part-time job seems super irrelevant. I'm not even sure how to drop it in to sound relevant?

dont put it in p.s as it is not relevant to course. on the ucas form there is a section called 'employment history' where you put any paid jobs you've had x

don’t force a link. it will make your statement look clumsy. you can ask your teacher to put it in your reference or put it in your employment history on the ucas application form. best of luck

Could you talk about the morphological differences between cod, haddock and plaice?

Thanks, I did think it sounded a bit odd every time I tried to fit it in

I've never heard of universities caring about your employment history.
