Mature Student, Personal Statement Help


I need a little assistance with structuring my personal statement, as a mature applicant (21). I'm unsure whether to add what I've learned from my A-Levels and direct it back as to the degree I'm applying for - or if it would be irrelevant? I've already added my experience in, but it's just this section that I'm stuck on.

I've tried looking online for help, but no luck.
Even if you were currently studying A levels then wasting space in your PS “linking” them to your degree subject would be a bad idea.

Talk about topics linked to your chosen degree that you find interesting, what you’ve read/listened to/watched/studied linked to those topics in the last year or two and what you’re looking forward to studying in more detail.
