You don’t need to do this. It’s a horrible waste of space and isn’t personal or about your subject.

Admissions staff know what benefits different A level subjects offer in preparing applicants for their courses. They don’t need to read 500 different explanations of the same thing.

I’d disagree, definitely look into the skills which cross over. E.g. biology being about living things and humans (of course plants too) radiography being about people too. Obviously more specific but I don’t know much about radiography. I’m applying for psychology as a degree so I spoke about my evaluative and statistical skills from maths and my essay subjects so they know i can do well on that course!

I have over a decades experience working in admissions.

While a lot of applicants do what you’ve done (because teachers often advise it) it doesn’t add anything of value to a PS and wastes space that could be used for something more personal.
For a subject like the OPs where the PS is far more important than for psychology (where it’s all but unknown for applicants to be rejected due to their PS even if their PS is dire) then I definitely would advise against wasting space on something so generic

Ditto. We do know what we are talking about !

For any vocational course connected to the NHS you need to use the PS to show that you understand the realities of the job - not wittering on about your A levels. More than anything you need to show (examples...) that you have the physical and emotional resilience to cope, that you have 'care' experience, and that you understand the NHS values - https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/wor...s-constitution - and how the role you are applying for works within the wider NHS.

Well how on earth would I have known that? You didn’t mention it so as far as I know you were just another student.

It shouldnt matter who reads your answer, if you are not certain of your response, not sure that you are giving the correct answer, then you need to phrase it accordingly. Its fine to answer but 'I'm not sure about this but...' is a good way of starting your response.
