Hi, I have a few question regarding my personal statement
1. Should I make it science based or can it be balanced cause I want to talk more about my other subjects which includes psychology
2. Is forensic science similar to forensic psychology? My personal statement is aimed at forensic science but I am also interested in forensic psychology. I also take a level psychology.
3. How can I tailor my personal statement if forensic science and forensic psychology are completely different.

1. You should make it focused on your course choice - you don't need to talk about your A Levels

2. No, they are very different subjects. You can't train to be a forensic psychologist just from undergrad, and for the degree to be accredited you will need to do other aspects of psychology

3. You can't write a decent PS for such different courses I'm afraid

As the previous poster said, these are completely different subjects. The first thing you need to do is research them both and decide which of them you actually want a career in and then choose between forensic science and psychology courses.
