Analysing Example Conclusions

In this video, Ankit Chadha analyses some example conclusions from a medical personal statement.

Bring all your points together in a brief summary that reminds the reader of your strengths and leaves them with a positive attitude towards your application. This does not have to be very long, and it is up to you how you wish to end your personal statement.

The 2 main rules about writing a good conclusion are:

  • You should clearly state at least 3 qualities that make you suitable for a career in medicine (e.g. dedication, empathy, scientific acuity)

  • You need to clearly state that you want to study medicine.

Take some time to analyse the example conclusions and see what you like and dislike about them.
