    I was going to Notts, but I withdrew and am going to apply to UCL/KCL etc. I'm going to basically use last year's PS, but I want to put something about what I am doing in my year out. Soo...shall I put a separate para on my year out, or can I just include it in little bits, ie. when talking about work experience in law firms, I have atm said I intend to gain further work experience at the office.. and then later on when talking about paid employment I've said I plan to work to gain funds for travel and uni....is that okay?! Sorry if it's been asked zillions of times!

    I have a placement year, so I did mine as a separate paragraph. It's probably more relevant to split it up for yours, though, as long as it's really clear what you're going to be doing (this seems to be an important post A level application criterion). I found it pretty hard to cut some of my old stuff though.

    Asking in the PS Forumwill help you, since it's hard to give advice without having a look at what you have/plan to write.

    Best of luck.
