EXAMPLE This is an empty opening statement with no examples cited to back it up. The weak attempt to define Law wastes spaces and provides no useful details about the applicant. Law

Captivated by the allencompassing importance of the law in society, I am amazed at the way crime is moderated, precedents are set and how they construct the nature of the world around us. EXAMPLE Good evidence of wider reading and critical ability.

Englis h I especially enjoy reading war poetry as it offers subjective and emotive responses that are rarely found in historical accounts. To pursue this interest I studied the pastoral idyll outside of the curriculum and explored the impact which the first word war had on ideas of rural land, particularly in Hardys poem In time of the Breaking of Nations (1915) and Edward Thomass As the Teams Head Brass (1916). I feel that the interlinking of the war and the land makes the seem

nearer in Thomas poem, whereas in Hardys work the presence of war is EXAMPLE Encountering both clinical and social challenges of the treatment prompted me to research alternatives including autologous pancreatic islet cell transplantation. Although APICT data boasts 69% of patients gain insulin independence, NICE predominantly recommends the enforcement of life changing programmes, from this I realised the crucial role of primary care services in promoting healthy lifestyles to prevent the onset of disease.

Excellent analysis of a complex case. The student actually shows their understanding of communication skills rather than simply stating how important they are. The reflection at the end shows their maturity. Medici ne

WHICH COURSE? Tell me and I will forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I will understand this is my philosophy to learning. I learnt this motto at the Global Students Forum in London where I became a peer educator. Additionally I have participated in a mock United Nations meeting at Chichester County Hall. These opportunities taught me how to apply my skills to communicate in different contexts and express my energetic, sociable creative personality within debates. AS EASY AS ABC ACTIVITY

BENEFIT COURSE BETTER EXAMPLES Discovery. To me that is what Chemistry is about. You never know when something ground-breaking could be at your fingertips. Both educationally and socially, university life will help me to grow as a person. I hope to develop skills to carry me through life and career and help me to succeed in all my endeavours. Within school, being a prefect and peer mentoring younger students has helped me to gain leadership qualities and also build good communication skills with people of different ages.

BAD EXAMPLES I also have a part-time job at my local Sainsburys store. At times this can be very demanding as I work on the delicatessen and some customers can be very picky about how thickly you cut their ham or how well you wrap it. I am currently working to address problems I have had meeting deadlines. I have few interests outside my studies, as I tend to believe that most such activities are ultimately futile.
