A well-written introduction of a scientific paper provides relevant background knowledge to convince the readers about the rationale, importance, and novelty of the research. The introduction should inform the readers about the “problem”, “existing solutions”, and “main limitations or gaps of knowledge”. The authors’ hypothesis and methodological approach used to examine the research hypothesis should also be stated. After reading a good introduction, readers should be guided through “a general context” to “a specific area” and “a research question”. Incomplete, inaccurate, or outdated reviews of the literature are the more common pitfalls of an introduction that may lead to rejection. This review focuses on the principles of writing the introduction of an article and provides a quick look at the essential points that should be considered for writing an optimal introduction.
Writing scientific papers is currently the most accepted outlet of research dissemination and scientific contribution. A scientific paper is structured by four main sections according to IMRAD (Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion) style ( 1 ).
To quote Plato, the Greek philosopher, “the beginning is half of the whole”, and the introduction is probably one of the most difficult sections in writing a paper ( 2 ). For writing introduction of a scientific paper, a “deductive approach” is generally used; deduction is the reasoning used to apply general theories and principles to reach specific consequences or hypotheses ( 3 ).
The initial impression of readers about writing style, the overall quality of research, validity of its findings, and the conclusion is strongly influenced by the introduction ( 4 ). A poor introduction misleads the readers about the content of the paper, possibly discouraging them from reading the subsequent sections; a well-written introduction, however, convinces the reader about the research logic ( 4 , 5 ). A good introduction is hence the main challenge faced by authors when drafting a research manuscript ( 2 ).
Historically, writing an introduction as an independent section of a research paper was underscored in the 1980s ( 6 ). Studies available on scientific writing provide evidence emphasizing the complexity of the compositional process of writing an introduction; these studies concluded that “introduction is not just wrestling with words to fit the facts, but it is also strongly modulated by perceptions of the anticipated reactions of peer-colleagues” ( 6 ).
Although there is no single correct way to organize different components of a research paper ( 7 ), scientific writing is an experimental science ( 7 ), and several guides have been developed to improve the quality of research disseminations ( 8 - 11 ). Typically, an introduction contains a summary of relevant literature and background knowledge, highlights the gap of knowledge, states the research question or hypothesis, and describes the methodological approach used to fill in the gap and respond to the question ( 12 - 14 ). Some believe that introduction can be a major context for debate about research methodology ( 6 ).
This review focuses on the principles of writing the introduction section and provides a quick look at the main points that must be considered for writing a good introduction.
2. Functions of the Introduction
The introduction of a scientific paper may be described as the gate to a city ( 5 ). It may also resemble a mental road map that should elucidate “the known”, “the unknown”, and “the new knowledge added by findings of the current study” ( 4 ); it presents the background knowledge to convince the readers of the importance of data added to that available in the field ( 15 ); in addition, the introduction sets the scene for readers ( 16 ) and paves the way for what is to follow ( 17 ). The introduction should be tailored to the journal to which the manuscript is being submitted ( 18 ). It has two functions, to be informative enough for understanding the paper and to evoke the reader’s interest ( 19 , 20 ). An introduction should serve as a hook, informing the readers of the question they should expect the paper to address ( 7 ). “A good introduction will sell the study to editors, reviewers, and readers” ( 18 , 21 ).
3. Common Models of Writing an Introduction
A historical overview of scientific writing shows that several models have been proposed overtime on how to organize the introduction of a research paper. One of the most common approaches is the “problem-solving model” developed in 1979; according to this model, a series of subcontexts including “goal”, “current capacity”, “problem”, “solution”, and “criteria for evaluation” have been described ( 6 ). The structure of this model could vary across disciplines ( 22 , 23 ).
Another popular model proposed is “creating a research space”, which mainly focuses on “the dark side” of the issue; this model, is usually known as CARS (create-a-research-space) model and follows three moves including establishing a territory (the situation), establishing a niche (the problem), and occupying a niche (the solution) ( 24 , 25 ). This model can be modified to a four-move model by expanding move 3 to include a “concluding step” when it is required to explain the structure of remaining parts of the paper ( 6 , 25 ).
4. A Typical Model of Introduction
In this paper, we focused on a typical model of introduction commonly used in biomedical papers. As shown in Figure 1 , the form of introduction is a funnel or an inverted pyramid, from large to small or broad to narrow ( 7 , 16 , 19 , 26 ). The largest part of the funnel at the top describes the general context/topic and the importance of the study; the funnel then narrows down to the gap of knowledge, and ends with the authors’ hypothesis or aim of the study and the methodological approach used to examine the research hypothesis ( 18 , 26 ). In fact, introduction presents research ideas flowing from general to specific ( 27 ). As given below, in hypothesis-testing papers, the introduction usually consists of 2 - 3 ( 28 ) and sometimes 4 paragraphs ( 16 ), including the known, the unknown (knowledge gap), hypothesis/question or specific topic, and sometimes the approach ( 16 , 19 ). Some authors end the introduction with essential findings of the paper ( 29 ). It has, however, been argued that the introduction should not include results or conclusion from the work being reported ( 2 , 16 , 20 ), as readers would then lose their interest in reading the rest of the manuscript ( 2 ). The introduction may also be expanded by including some uncommon parts like “future implications of the work” ( 30 ).
4.1. The Known
In this section, a brief summary of background information is provided to present the general topic of the paper ( 20 ). This section should arouse and build the audience’s attention and interest in the hypothesis/question or specific topic ( 29 ). This part may be considered the same as move 1 of the CARS model and includes “claiming importance”, “making topic generalizations”, and “reviewing items of previous research” ( 22 , 24 ).
Besides the different roles proposed for citation, its primary motive is believed to be “perceived relevance” ( 31 ). It is important that the review of literature be complete, fair, balanced ( 29 ), to the point ( 19 ), and directly related to the study ( 16 ); it should not be too long or contain a very detailed review of literature ( 7 , 28 ) or a complete history of the field ( 9 ). Depending on the audience ( 16 ), authors should include background information that they think readers need for following the rest of the paper ( 16 ).
Contrary to the current view that the introduction should be short and act as a prelude to the manuscript itself, another opinion, however, suggests this section provides a complete introduction to the subject ( 32 ). Sweeping generalizations (i.e., applying a general rule to a specific situation) should be avoided in the first (the opening) sentence of the introduction ( 8 ). The first three sentences of the first paragraph should present the issue that will be addressed by the paper ( 8 ). If the general topic be presented in the very first word of a very short sentence, the reader is able to immediately focus on and understand the issue ( 30 ).
4.2. The Unknown/Gap of Knowledge
The importance and novelty of the work should be stated in the introduction ( 19 ). This section describes the gaps in our present understanding of the field and why it is necessary that these gaps in data be filled ( 29 ). In this section, the author should present limitations of prior studies, needed (but currently unavailable) information, or an unsolved problem and highlight the importance of the missing pieces of the puzzle ( 16 ). This section provides information to justify the aim of the study, that is, it provides rationale for the readers to convince them ( 8 , 20 ); however, one-sided or biased views of controversial issues should be avoided ( 33 ).
The unknown section of the introduction is similar to “establishing a niche” and includes “counter-claiming” and “indicating a gap” ( 6 , 25 ). To develop a “counter-claiming” statement, the author needs to mention an opposing viewpoint or perspective or highlight a gap or limitation in current literature ( 24 ). “Counter-claiming” sentences are usually distinguished by a specific terminology, including albeit, although, but, howbeit, however, nevertheless, notwithstanding, unfortunately, whereas, and yet ( 24 ). This step toward or “continuing a tradition” part ( 6 , 25 ) is an extension of prior research to expand upon or clarify a research problem ( 24 ), and the connection is commonly initiated with the following terms: “hence,” “therefore,” “consequently,” or “thus” ( 24 ). An alternative approach for “counter-claiming” within the context of prior research is giving a “new perspective” without challenging the validity of previous research or highlighting their limitations ( 24 ).
Pitfalls in this section include missing an important paper and overstating the novelty of the study ( 29 ).
4.3. Rationale of Research/Hypothesis/Question
Defining the rationale of research is the most critical mission of the introduction section, where the author should tell the reader why the research is biologically meaningful ( 34 ). In stating the rationale of the study, an author should clarify that the study is the next logical step in a line of investigations, addressing the limitations of previous works ( 8 ). This section corresponds to “occupying the niche” in the CARS model ( 6 ), where contribution of the research in the development of “novel” knowledge is stated in contrast to prior research on the topic ( 24 ). The question/hypothesis, something that is not yet proven ( 35 ), is placed at the tip of the inverted cone/pyramid ( 16 ), and it is usually last sentence of the last paragraph in the introduction that presents the specific topic, which is “ What was done in your paper ?” ( 7 , 8 , 19 ).
The main and secondary objectives should be clear and preferably comprise no more than two sentences ( 20 ). The question should be clearly stated as the most common reason for rejection of a manuscript is the inability to do this ( 8 ); it would be a bad start that reviewers/readers cannot grasp the research question of the paper ( 36 ).
5. Writing Tips
5.1. the length.
The introduction should be generally short ( 7 , 37 ) and not exceed one double-spaced typed page ( 37 ), approximately 250 - 300 words are typically sufficient and sometimes it may be longer (500 - 600 words) ( 19 , 38 ); however, depending on the audience and type of paper, the length of the introduction could vary ( 20 ); if it is more than two-thirds the length of the results section, it is probably too long ( 9 ). It has been recommended that the introduction should be no more than 10% to 15% of total manuscript excluding abstract and references ( 18 , 26 ). A long introduction may be used to compensate for the limited data given about the actual research, a pitfall that peer-reviewers are aware of ( 30 ).
5.2. Sentence and Paragraph
In a scientific paper, each paragraph should contain a single main idea ( 7 , 39 ) that stands alone and is very clear ( 7 ). The first sentence of a paragraph should tell the reader what to expect to get out of the paragraph ( 7 ). Flow is a critical element in paragraph structure, that is to say, every sentence should arise logically from the sentence before it and transition logically into the next sentence ( 7 ). It is suggested that length of a sentence in a scientific text should not exceed 25 - 30 words; maximum three to four 30-word sentences are allowed in a paper ( 40 ). The ideal size for a paragraph is 3 - 4 sentences (maximum five sentences) ( 39 ) or 75 - 150 words (ideally not exceeding 150 words) ( 30 ). The maximum length of a paragraph in a well-written paper should not exceed 15 lines ( 30 ).
To test readability of a paragraph or passage, the Gunning Fog scoring formula may be helpful. This index helps the author to write clearly and simply. Fog score is typically between 0 and 20 and estimates the years of formal education the reader requires to understand the text on the first reading (5, is very easy; 6 is easy to read; 14 is difficult; 16 is very difficult) ( 41 , 42 ). Fog score is calculated as follow:
Where a complex word is defined as a word containing three or more syllables ( 43 ). An online tool that calculates the Gunning Fog Index is available at http://gunning-fog-index.com/index.html.
Using the correct verb tense in scientific writing enables authors to manage time and establish a logical relation or “time framework” within different parts of a paper ( 44 ). Two tenses are mostly used in scientific writing, namely the present and the past ( 18 , 45 ); “present tense” is used for established general knowledge (general truths) and “past tense” for the results that you are currently reporting ( 11 , 39 , 45 ). Some authors believe that “present tense” better describes most observations in a scientific paper ( 5 , 7 ). To manage the time framework of the introduction, a transitional verb tense from “present simple” at the beginning (to describe general background) to “present perfect” (describing the problem over time), and again “present simple” at the end of introduction (to state the hypothesis and approach) is commonly recommended ( 30 ).
Although a review of the literature may recommend several tenses, using “present simple” or “present perfect” is more common ( 46 ); the use of “present tense” to refer to the existing research indicates that the authors believe the findings of an older research are still true and relevant ( 44 ). The “present perfect tense” may be adopted when authors communicate “currency” (being current), in both positive (asserting that previous studies have established a firm research foundation) and negative (asserting that not enough relevant or valid work has yet been done) forms ( 44 ).
As seen in Table 1 , much of the introduction emphasizes on previously established knowledge, hence using the present tense ( 11 , 37 ). If you give the author’s name non-parenthetically, present or past tense could be used for the verb that is linked to the author; however, scientific work itself is given in the present tense; for instance, Smith (1975) showed that streptomycin inhibits growth of the organism ( 11 ).
Reference section is a vital component of papers ( 51 ). Peer-reviewed articles are preferred by scientific journals ( 51 ). Be cautious never to cite a reference that you have not read ( 51 ) and be sure to cite the source of the original document ( 18 ). The number of references in the introduction should be kept to a minimum ( 19 ) according to the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (http://icmje.org). Only directly pertinent references should be selected, but do not miss important previous works ( 9 , 20 ). A common error in the writing of an introduction is the struggle to review all evidence available on the topic, which confuses the readers and often buries the aim of the study in additional information ( 26 , 52 ). If there are many references, select the first, the most important, the most elegant, the most pertinent, and the most recent ones ( 18 , 19 ). References should be selected from updated papers with higher impact factors ( 5 ). In addition, select original rather than review articles ( 2 , 53 ), as this is what most editors/reviewers expect ( 18 ). In the presence of newer references, older ones are usually used if considered as being an influential work ( 16 ).
Unnecessary overlap of introduction and discussion is a problem for both sections, therefore, it has been strongly recommended to cite the references where it makes most sense ( 16 ). No reference needs to be made for accepted facts such as double-helical structure of DNA ( 9 ). There is usually no need to list standard text books as references and if this has been done, specify the place in the book ( 32 ). Some authors believe that referring to papers using author names should be avoided, as it slows the pace of writing ( 8 ).
6. Common Pitfalls in Writing Introduction
The most common pitfalls that occur during writing the introduction include: ( 1 ) Providing too much general information, ( 2 ) going into details of previous studies, ( 3 ) containing too many citations, ( 4 ) criticizing recent studies extensively, ( 5 ) presenting the conclusion of the study, except for studies where the format requires this, ( 6 ) having inconsistency with other sections of the manuscript, ( 7 ) including overlapping information with the discussion section, and ( 8 ) not reporting most relevant papers ( 2 ). In Table 2 , most do’s and don’ts for writing a good introduction are summarized; examples of the principles for writing an introduction for a scientific paper can be found in the literature ( 16 , 19 ).
The introduction of scientific original papers should be short but informative. Briefly, the first part of a well-written introduction is expected to contain the most important concisely cited references, focused on the research problem. In the second part, the problem and existing solutions or current limitations should be elaborated, and the last paragraph should describe the rationale for the research and the main research purpose. The introduction is suggested be concluded with a brief paragraph that describes the organization of the rest of the paper. Overall, a good introduction should convince the readers that the study is important in the context of what is already known.

How to Write a Standout Biomedical Personal Statement
Where do i start with writing a biomedical science university personal statement.
Writing your personal statement can feel like a mammoth task and knowing where to start can be really tricky. It is important, however, to not get too wrapped up in what a perfect biomedical sciences personal statement should be and instead think about what will make you and your passion for the subject stand out . Everyone’s personal statement will be different as there is no one way to write it, but there are some essential components that your biomed personal statement should include. Committing to a three or four year degree course at a top university is no walk in the park; you need to be invested in pursuing what you are applying to for at least the next 3/4 years, therefore showing your passion for biomedical sciences is one of the most important components of your personal statement. But what does this mean and how do you portray this on one side of A4? Mention specific topics/ themes that you like about biomedical sciences , showcase some subject knowledge, highlight super-curriculars that you have engaged with as well as writing about any extracurriculars, personal interests and skills that you have that will make you a fantastic candidate to study biomedical sciences at a top uni.
How important is my biomedical personal statement?
Oxbridge and other top universities will use your personal statement as a component of their short-listing procedure. They will then use your personal statement to generate questions for the interview to which you may be invited. For biomed, these questions relating to your biomedical science personal statement are likely to be ice breakers as the interviewers will expect you to be comfortable talking about your personal statement and anything that you have mentioned within it. Therefore, it is important that you write your statement with the expectation that you will be asked to expand upon and explain every single sentence.
Showing my passion for Biomedical Science? Super-curriculars
Most top unis, including Oxbridge, will be less interested in your extracurricular activities and more interested in how you can prove your passion for biomedical sciences. Super-curriculars are the best pieces of evidence you can provide – they show that you have gone above and beyond your school syllabus and taken initiative to broaden your knowledge. These may include things like reading books related to the subject, listening to podcasts, reading magazine and newspaper articles, completing MOOCs (massive online open courses), watching documentaries, attending taster days or any relevant work experience you have undertaken . By no means do you need to do all of these but having a couple of examples will be an excellent way to make your biomedical science statement standout. Having said this, it is most important to engage with what you’re genuinely interested in rather than what you feel you should be reading, watching, listening to and so on – this way your pure interest will shine through naturally without it feeling forced. If invited to interview as well, this will make it much easier for you to talk about your personal statement as it will all be things you enjoyed.
Need to boost your super-curriculars?
Our co-curricular division, Minds Underground, was build out to support top students approaching university/ Oxbridge applications and looking to stretch beyond the curriculum. You could try:
Our University Prep Virtual Summer Schools (e.g. Medicine, Biology) - Each is hosted by 2 Oxbridge graduates and will provide loads of exciting content for personal statements and interviews

Book recommendations for biomedical sciences
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot – this book tells the story of a woman who died in 1951 from cervical cancer whose legacy continues to this day with the HeLa cell line. Taken from Henrietta’s tumour while she was still alive, it was cultured in a lab and found to be immortal. Having been used in an array of biomedical research since then, the ethical issues and dilemmas raised in this book provide insight into some of the arguments and discussions that are dominant within the field of bioethics.
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks – this book by the neurologist Oliver Sacks provides a series of case studies of some of the most notable patients of Sacks’ career; despite this book being particularly fascinating to those interested in neuroscience and psychology, this is an interesting read for anyone entering the field of biomedical science.
The Epigenetic Revolution by Nessa Carey – epigenetics is the study of differences between genetically identical organisms which have non-identical phenotypes; this book provides a detailed and fascinating insight into the relatively new discipline of epigenetics.
Bad Science by Ben Goldacre – an engaging analysis of the current state of science; particularly recommended if you are interested in research and how science can often be “lost” behind money, media and business.

What about my extracurriculars?
When it comes to extracurriculars it can be tempting to write a list of everything you’ve done to show how well-rounded you are, however, it is better to only mention a couple and relate it back to why you should be offered a place to study biomedical sciences. For example, being a prefect equips you with leadership and teamwork skills which would be useful during group project and practical classes; completing a Duke of Edinburgh award would provide you with problem solving skills, again important during practical classes and also when critically appraising primary papers.
Addressing the universities’ selection criteria
To make your whole personal statement shine even brighter you should address specific selection criteria from the course webpage on the universities’ websites. The University of Oxford’s Medical Sciences Division website says they are looking for biomed candidates who show “intellectual curiosity and enthusiasm” , as illustrated by your examples of seeking out super-curriculars for instance. Similarly, communication skills can be shown through jobs that you may have had – “I have worked in my local charity shop for 2 years, talking with customers and colleagues helped me to develop my interpersonal skills.”
How do I start drafting and structuring my Biomed personal statement?
You can never have too many drafts of your personal statement. It is best to start early so you have time to edit and adapt and improve. Often when you think you have a final copy you can go back and make even more improvements. Having a break and coming back with a fresh pair of eyes can help you spot gaps or errors or can even help you reduce the character count (as UCAS has a strict limit on characters so it is important to keep your paragraphs concise and to the point). Make sure to create links between each section/ paragraph to make the whole personal statement flow as one, instead of it reading like a list of what you’ve done and why you should be given a place to study biomedical sciences.
If you are struggling with the structure of the statement it is a good idea to simply write whichever paragraph you can and then come back at the end to order your paragraphs and create links. You may want to write your ending before you’ve written your introduction – there is no right or wrong way to do this, it just has to be yours.
How do I end my personal statement?
Concluding your personal statement for biomedicine can feel just as hard as starting it but at this point you are almost there! If you can, it is good to conclude with a punchy sentence, something that nicely rounds up what you have been saying throughout: that you are a passionate biomedical scientist who is excited to pursue a biomedical sciences degree. You could refer back to what makes you the ideal biomed candidate and use keywords from the degree course webpages to help.
The best biomedical personal statements are original and personal to you, showcasing your passion for pursuing a degree in biomedical sciences and encompassing what you are genuinely interested in.

Looking for a Personal Statement Tutor or Support For Your Wider Biomedical Science Application?
Biomed personal statement support.
U2’s Oxbridge-educated mentors have a close insight into what admissions tutors like to see in a Biomedical personal statement, and can help students to convey their skills, motivations, and long term goals, in order to stand out from other applicants. The statement should be the candidates own work, but our mentors will provide direction and guide you through the process of content building and writing. We offer offline drafting as well as tuition sessions.
Medical School Entrance Tuition
We offer Medical School tuition for students looking for support throughout the application process (book a free consultation to discuss options). We have a large team of Oxbridge Biomedical Science tutors including 1st Class, Master’s and PhD level graduates.
1) We suggest an Oxbridge-educated Biomed primary tutor and send their full CV for review. Our mentors are deeply familiar with the admissions process to study Biomed at the University of Oxford and Cambridge (Biological Natural Sciences), and are well-placed to guide you through biomed personal statement curation and the interview process. We may suggest a range of application tutors to choose from with slightly differing rates depending on qualifications and level of experience.
2) We typically suggest beginning with a 1.5 hour informal assessment/ taster session , where the tutor will informally assess the student’s current performance level for application. Following this, we issue a report with feedback, and structure a plan to best prepare.
3) U2’s approach for regular Biomedical Science application sessions: The main focus of tutorial sessions will be to explore material that can be discussed in the personal statement and at interview - this may sometimes stretch from A-Level standard to First Year Undergraduate. Mentors ensure each student refines their interests within Biomedical Science, and is exposed to a range of key themes and topics. Together, we build a case for the student, solidifying the stance and direction they will take during interview.
Frequency of sessions can be decided between student and tutor. Students can take either ad hoc sessions, or we structure a full programme for preparation, which may include further co-curricular opportunities such as our research projects , Medicine or Biology Summer School and Oxbridge mock interview days . Honing the skills necessary to succeed for Oxbridge ideally requires long-term preparation and mentoring presents a wonderful opportunity to learn from some of the very best Oxbridge has produced.
Sessions from £75/h.

Biomedical science personal statement
People always have longer-life expectancy as no one wants their life to be threatened by fatal illnesses. Therefore, groups of researchers that work incredibly hard to discover new ways for treating disease is the more significant and indispensable part of the healthcare. I am always curious in striving to know the mystery of the human body and how it functions. This is why I would like to contribute to advances in the medical profession because there are still lots of existing problems. For instance, the possibility of invalidity in most of our antibiotics we are using now due to the evolution of bacteria. I believe that with my desire in discovering the truth of these unsolved issues, biomedical science would be the best way to fulfil my ambitions. My love for biology has deepened after reading the book ‘The Human Body’ that is written by Gillian Pocock and Christopher D. Richards.
This enriches my knowledge in biomedical and health sciences as well as discovering a lot of interesting topics that would not be taught in lessons; this includes the causes of disorders in erythrocytes and neutrophils which I think it is one of the most wonderful and explicit systems in the human body. Reading books like this gives me a great feeling of achievement and satisfaction as I get to learn more and more about these topics and read outside of the syllabus. My intention and determination to seek for biomedical science is influenced by the choices of my A level subjects. Chemistry and Biology are my two favourite subjects; I find it is fascinating to be able to discover more about the two associated subjects by combining them to learn more about biochemistry. Mathematics has also made a massive contribution as it has given me the ability to prepare myself to meet challenging tasks such as to think logically in analysing samples of diseases and being careful in doing experiment in order to get an accurate result. I hope that I can apply all of this in biomedical science which I believe is the most suitable area for me to dedicate my studies. I chose to expand my knowledge of first aid and by becoming a volunteer with the St John ambulance because I have always wanted to be more involved in social care. This experience now enables me to apply the skills that I have learnt from the lessons when necessary.

Without paying upfront
I also volunteered to work in a second hand book store in the summer of 2012 and this work experience allowed me to meet different groups of people and to work efficiently. It has, in turn; helped to build up an array of life skills such as confidence when serving customers and learn to work under stress which I think will be important and useful later in life involving as a biomedical scientist. Apart from having a keen interest in the academic field, I am very fond of music whether it is enjoying listening to different genres and styles of music or being involved as a musician. The love I have for music is evident in the fact that I have been playing the piano for over 10 years and in that time have achieved a grade 8 qualification. With this ability, I participated in the school music performance and volunteered to help with the music department on a school open day. As well as this, I have achieved a grade 5 in music theory and enjoy playing the guitar in my spare time. I am also a vocalist in a band in which I enjoy playing rock and pop music.
This is an experience which makes me keener and positive that I will be able collaborate in a team; a skill I believe to be a very important aspect of being a biomedical scientist – where teamwork will be necessary. I understand and appreciate that life in university is going to be a unique step for me. As well as to maintain my academic side, I would love to continue my interest and hobbies in university in order to provide a healthy balance in my life. This also helps to increase my ability in time management; I believe studying biomedical science will conclusively not cause pressure for me, but allow me to have an enjoyable and exciting life experience. I am sure that in the future it will provide a perfect opportunity for me on the path of becoming a fully skilled biomedical scientist.

Extract of sample "Personal Statement/Biomedical science"
My ailments not just brought me closer to understanding the intricacies of going through a disease, but also exposed me to the emotional discomfort it comes with. Thus, ever since my childhood, I have always aimed at learning human physiology and disease processes, to fulfill my quest for a healthy, ailment-free life, not just for me but also for millions of others. After exploring a dozen other possible medical fields, I have inferred that biomedical science is my true calling. Education: I am fully equipped, both educationally and mentally, for pursuing a career in Biomedical Science.
I am currently studying Biology, Chemistry, English Literature and Sociology at A level. My current grades at AS level are A, B, C and A in Biology, Sociology, Chemistry and English Literature, respectively. At A2 level, I hope to perform even better and push these grades up to straight A’s. I have also taken up other biology-oriented courses to strengthen my basics in the subject and increase my working knowledge in this field. Why I chose biomedical science: I have a keen interest in the detailed study of the human body and disease processes, and have always aimed at studying these in-depth. . I find the amazing ability of living organisms to adapt to their constantly changing environments as highly fascinating and motivating.
In chemistry, I am particularly attracted to organic chemistry, especially because it deals with the formulation of drugs and in understanding the basis behind mechanisms of drug metabolism and other such processes. Studying chemistry at the AS level has sharpened my laboratory skills and enhanced my ability in handling equipment for qualitative and quantitative analysis. Since I prefer the practical aspects of biology and aim at going beyond conventional theoretical studies, studying biomedical science is my ultimate goal.
Expectations from the course: While pursuing this course, I expect to be introduced to issues of human health, disease diagnosis and treatment, and formulation and screening of new drugs. I would gain a better understanding of new research frontiers in medical science, and will be better equipped to explore modern advancements in biomedical research. I will be in a better position to seek new treatment modalities for diseases, and understand the already existing ones. By studying this course at the XXXXXXX College/University, I will be exposed to an enviably good educational environment, and peers and professors that are more creditable and knowledgeable.
Work experience: I have gained significant experience working at a local hospital for over a month. The job involved working with doctors, dentists, laboratory technicians and other medical professionals. Working at this hospital has helped me in communicating better with medical personnel, and has also provided me with the mental conditioning required for the kind of job environment I will be exposed to after completing biomedical
