    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)
    Neither need capitals, but psychology needs a h.

    Apparently many people mention their a-level subjects and why they took them, but it's hard to spin it in a way they haven't heard before.

    I didn't myself, and most people agree that there are much better things you can mention in your PS

    I guess it varies from university to university.. they could ask you about it at interview if they wanted to though.

    If you think you gained anything from it then of course it is

    Were you put under time pressure (eg. injuries that had to be treated immediately) ?

    What do you write in the conclusion? I have wrote one but it just seems waffling and a bit disjointed.

    You're very allowed to talk about it as an extracurricular! Just make sure you're clear about that

    Why are you doing 5 A-Levels, by the way?

    Basically you just want to finish off with your essay. Sum up your abilities. Seal the deal.

    (Original post by TSR Wiki)
    It needs to sum up why you want to be a doctor and why you're perfect for the career. It must not assume you're going to get into medical school- don’t be arrogant (e.g. 'I look forward to seeing you at interview.'), but sound confident. Don't suddenly bring in things if you've never mentioned them before, such as "I can cope with the stresses on a doctor" when throughout the statement you've never addressed them. Avoid the phrase 'ideal candidate' as each medical school will have a different idea of what this is. Don't refer to the university directly ('your university') as this comes across as very insincere considering you're applying to 4 or 5 universities.
    It might take a while before you get the right string of words, but sit down and think about it for a while.

    Why YOU?

    Hi,
    I am applying for medicine as a graduate. I am currently in my final year of my civil engineering degree.
    So should I mention this in my personal statement?
    Really finding it hard to bring it in, seen as its not science or medical related course. Possibly, could I mention that it is good from problem-solving, thinking logically perspective? Or would it be better not to mention it at all??

    Hmm. I'm starting to wonder if I've skimped a bit on my work xp paragraph and wrote too much extra currics and stuff.


    Breakdown of charectors
    494 on intro
    648 on Work XP at a hosptial.
    236 on Alternate work xp @ a lab
    283 on subjects
    842 on volenteer work
    692 on extra curric
    392 on paragraph about scientific interests
    280 on outro

    Do you think I should lengthen my outro, delete the subjects bit and add more about my work experience? My volenteer work seems a large paragraph but it's all relevent

    1/6 of your PS is EC which is fine I think. I didn't write anything on my subjects, because everyone does the same ones anyway, so unless you stand out from the crowd, there's not much point - you can use the extra words much better to reflect on your work experience. If its relevant and you like it, keep it - after all, it's meant to be personal

    I dislike my paragraph on my subjects but my tutors made me put it in. I think I'll remove it tomorrow and expand a bit on my work xp.

    Hi.

    My post-16 teacher says to talk about the scientific side of the work experience, and examples of things I actually learned?

    Or should I just focus on what it has shown me to be a doctor?

    Thanks

    Focus on what it's shown you rather than specific scientific things (which are what medical school is there for!)
