Personal statement 1

Personal Statement 1

I like physics, because it is good. Ever since I was a child I wanted to study it and my dad is a physicist too.

I have tried hard at maths, even though I don’t really enjoy it. Art is my favourite subject and I like drawing pictures. I am also good on the computer and I did this for my work experience.

In my spare time I like socialising with my friends and watching TV. I also have a part-time job at MacDonalds. Which helps me to meet other people.

I am planning to take a Gap Year and tour around the country gigging with my friends.

Personal statement 2

Personal Statement 2

“What has happened in the past?” and “What is going to happen in the future?” are two questions that have always fascinated me. I am keen to understand how and why things happen in an attempt to answer these questions . Hence, I wish to study Physics at university as I am convinced that it is a subject I will find stimulating and challenging.

I am always trying to push my knowledge past the boundaries of the syllabus. I enjoy reading books such as “The Origin of the Universe” by John Barrow and regularly read articles in Scientific American and New Scientist.


Summer timetable

My main non-academic interests lie in hiking and camping. These recently culminated in a 6-week expedition to Alaska with BSES Expeditions. Living in such abnormal and harsh conditions has helped teach me to work effectively as a team and has also developed my leadership skills.

I have been involved with the training of younger pupils at school for their Duke Of Edinburgh’s Bronze Award and I enjoyed teaching them and encouraging them in a hobby which I personally enjoy.

Overall I am a self-motivated person and a diligent student. I feel that I have the logical thinking and mathematical skills to succeed in a Physics degree and I look forward to delving deeper into a subject that is of endless fascination to me.

University is a LOTdifferent and a LOTharder than A-levels.

Contact hours: 6th form 21 hours pw; Business at University 12 hours pw.

Quality of teaching is much worse.

Only person to push you is yourself.

Increased work load, constant deadlines.

Referencing.

A huge amount of reading and research in order to get the top grades.
