Personal statement advice: biology

We asked a biology admissions tutor what the secret is to writing a successful biology personal statement. Apparently, there isn't one - it’s all about genuine passion, enthusiasm and curiosity. The simple objective to writing a successful biology personal statement is to show that you understand what you're applying for, along with some evidence of your enthusiasm, and commitment to the subject.
