Medical Biochemistry Personal Statement Example
My fascination with Science developed at a young age owing to the fact that both my parents and brother are employed in the medical industry
Both my parents are registered nurses and my brother, a biomedical scientist. But it was my brother's profession that most enthral me, thus enthused me in his area of expertise. Hence, I am encouraged to follow my brother's footsteps and resolve to take Medical Biochemistry
Since coming here in England in 2001, I became more proficient in the use of English language to communicate verbally with others. Although I was very well trained to use English language in verbal and written communication when I was still in the Philippines, being here in the United Kingdom gave me the opportunity to practice what I have learned
But, not only was I able to practice English language by studying here in England, I also got the chance to take 'A' levels in Chemistry and Maths which I confidently believe will help me in my chosen career
Also, I have taken AS Business Studies and Psychology as I feel it is important to have a wide understanding of the diverse behaviours and thoughts of people. This year, I have decided that I will re-sit some of the modules I have taken in AS Chemistry and Maths to make my qualification even higher. It is good to mention that I have achieved a grade of 'BB' for my General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) double award sciences and a grade of 'A' for my Maths, which reinforced my aspiration to pursue the course
To broaden my horizon, I have indulged myself in other fields such as basic computer programming. Having my own computer facility and Internet access at home has not only allowed me to search for topics concerning Maths and Chemistry but also to develop my computer skills
My work experience in Career Town Centre as one of the administrative aides has enabled me to meet and work effectively with various people
And though I never had the chance to undergo any training regarding medical practice, I do believe that I would be able to cope with whatever challenges I will meet while pursuing the career I've chosen to obtain
I believe that my being practical and reasonable, as well as being punctual and organised will be advantageous in studying in the University. I also do believe that I am self-motivated, committed, patient and creative and have personally proven that fact very early in life when I taught myself how to play a guitar and master piano playing, thus proving that I love diversity as well. Though I am at times timid and quiet, I usually overcome my shyness when I learn more about the people I meet. But all in all, I know that with my qualities, beliefs and experiences, I am equipped to go through the university with flying colours.

You don't really make much of an argument for you choice of study nor why you are apt for it. I think mentioning you are resiting is a bad idea and the GCSE results are a bit pointless really..

I'm sorry but this personal statement is PATHETIC! this is the chance where you can show yourself, so use it really well!! What is the point in mentioning your re-sits? they won't care- all they care is the final grade that you would get. plus in the 2nd paragraph, you sound as though you don't like the subject- you were "encouraged to follow in my brother's footsteps and RESOLVE to take medicinal biochemistry". never mention your weak points "i am timid and quiet" because then they may have doubts about you. "Having my own computer facility and Internet access at home has not only allowed me to search for topics concerning Maths and Chemistry but also to develop my computer skills" this maybe true but not convincing. "Since coming here in England in 2001, I became more proficient in the use of English language to communicate verbally with others. Although I was very well trained to use English language in verbal and written communication when I was still in the Philippines, being here in the United Kingdom gave me the opportunity to practice what I have learned" they're not asking for family history.. whether your English is good is reflected in your grades- as the exams are in english or in you ILETS test if you did one.
To proespective students, please please don't make the same mistakes!!!

i will have to agree, its a fairly weak PS...GCSE's shouldnt be used in statements as to be honest...their not that difficult.
Also should'nt really go into detail about re-takes as its very negative...if u do want to keep it you have to think of very positive points to back up why
