I was wondering whether anyone had advice regarding admissions. I applied last year made it through to every interview, but I was unsuccessful afterwards. Does this mean my personal statement was okay? Meaning I can leave it the same this year? Also does this show that I’m better on paper than in person?
I’d appreciate any advice x

It wasn’t easy! But defiantly doable! I got a merit for my research project and one of the biology unit! Otherwise it would of been 45 distinctions :/
