    To be honest, the only thing in that I'd capitalise would be the 'I.' Sixth Form might need capitals but I'm not entirely sure on that.

    I have shadowed vascular scientist as part of a summer school, how can I develop this experience so it allows me to convey my understanding of the role of a doctor? (I have not yet been able to gain any work experience in a hospital although I have a placement in December.)

    Reflection reflection reflection. What did you learn? Why is this important? Do you feel you are capable of these things? Have you ever demonstrated them?

    Hey people on TSR :woo:
    I just got a quick question about putting something in my personal statement. I just need to know if it is vital to put the duration I spent at hospitals, GP's etc. I am concerned that if I don't put it in, universities might not like it. It may seem like a really small thing but I need to have a near perfect statement as I am applying to Southampton and they put a lot of weighting on personal statements and references I've heard.

    Thank you very much for your help in advance. :cool:

    It depends...putting in how long you've done exp for can give a more realistic touch to it,but if you have little work experience,then it'd be wise not to put the duration

    I've found that some universities do want to know the duration of work experience but others don't seem to mind.

    I was wondering: Is it:

    I look forward to studying psycology and have an interest in paediatrics OR

    I look forward to studying Psycology and have an interest in Paediatrics

    In other words, which need capitals and which don't? (this is just an example sentence)

    Spaces don't count as extra characters to my knowledge, but they take up one extra line (out of your 47).
