Tell Them Why You Want To Go Into Medicine _ The second goal for the personal statement is to tell the committee why you want to go into medicine. The committee needs to see your passion for medicine. While wheeling around patients while volunteering shows them something, this is your chance to really tell them why you want to go into medicine.
The Universities and College Admission Service (UCAS) mediate all applications made to universities in the UK. You cannot apply directly to a UK university and therefore all applications must be made via UCAS using the dreaded UCAS form. This form requires you to enter your personal details, your course choices and most important of all your personal statement. Your UCAS personal statement is your opportunity to sell yourself to admissions tutors and convince them they should offer you a place at university over the 100’s of other applicants.
