  1. Time Management and Organising my Studies

    Resolutions & Action Plan In order to combat procrastination and poor decision making, the best resolution, in my opinion, would be to set specific time slots in certain days for college work to be completed. This would need to be done once a time table has been devised to figure out what the rest of the day's time is being taken up by, i.e. household chores, errands, work, etc. Another point would be to determine the time in which I work best and am more concentrated.

  2. Personal Statement for Arts application

    I gained practise in expressing, negotiating ideas and solving problems on projects outside the A-level curriculum. Attending the Louis Vuitton Summer Academy allowed me to channel my creativity to break youth myths; our collaborative task was to make people aware of the issue. Working within a set time of 45 minutes, I pioneered a conceptual live art piece symbolising the typical stroppy teenager, where our team dressed in oversized paper bags and followed passersby. The reaction from Londoners was fantastic, gaining many Tweets and an article from Dazed Digital.

  3. Medical Personal Statement. My time in St. Lucia at the local hospital exposed me to the dour reality of medicine and that not everyone can be cured.

    With this information I would use my knowledge to suggest and discuss with the doctor probable causes, diagnostics and plan of action. Doing this repeatedly every day not only built up my knowledge but also enhanced my communication skills and professional behaviour as I learnt that medicine taps into a personal agenda whereby gaining the patients trust and communicating medical jargon into an understandable language, was key.

  4. Personal statement- Engineering. My determination to study engineering, especially mechanical engineering, stems from an early curiosity to learn how machines work. I satisfy this by watching documentaries, searching the web and by delving

    Furthermore, Physics has given me an understanding of the basic principles governing the natural world, while maths has provided me with the means of modelling real life situations; a combination of both has not only improved my problem solving skills but helped me to explain the world around me. For example, whilst pointing a pair of 3D glasses at a LCD TV I noticed that rotating them caused the image on the screen to change intensity, using the physics I had learnt I was able to reach the conclusion that the glasses had a Polaroid filter in them and the light from the TV must be polarised.

  5. Time Management. Effective time management can improve the quality of our life and it gives us many benefits for example reduction of stress, increased of productivity, better health and the list goes on.

    In my academic life, with so much assignment to do and complete, I start to realize that managing my time is the most challenging aspect. Therefore, I will note down which assignments I have to do on that day and how long it will take me to accomplish it. It allows me to schedule my events easily so that I have enough time to spend on my works and assignments. In my personal life, preparing a time log gives me a clear picture of how my hours are spent and also it is easier for me to make some necessary adjustments to avoid wasting my time in some unhealthy events or activities.

  6. Personal Statement. The weekly visits to a center for children with autism and cerebral palsy during my first semester in college had strengthened my desire to learn more about medicine.

    This had shown me two sides of the profession, a more mechanical, rigid aspects of it such as keeping the medical record true and systematic and maintaining neutral attitude towards every patient while the other side being softer and touches more intimately on the emotional and emphatic relation between one human being caring for another. Beyond doubt, keeping these two in balance is a challenge I am willing to venture in. The weekly visits to a center for children with autism and cerebral palsy during my first semester in college had strengthened my desire to learn more about medicine.

    giving up amateurs to spend more time playing in my college band as well as the local band that I am with. I started to play the guitar when I was 14 and took a keen interest in the instrument as itself and how it is used and manipulated in music. With my keen ambitions for music practise I started looking in to taking a music guitar course with a local tutor once a month. This led me to take interests in many different areas with in the music practise area, such as notation, different playing techniques and styles, and many new genre of music, although hardcore and rock became my favourite.

  9. There are many current affairs that have an impact on the uniformed public services. I have chosen to look at how terrorism, institutionalised r****m and the pay dispute have had an impact on the police force.

    and the country's mobile telecommunications infrastructure. On 21 July 2005, a second series of four explosions took place on the London Underground and a London bus. The detonators of all four bombs exploded, but none of the main explosive charges detonated, and there were no casualties: the single injury reported at the time was later revealed to be an asthma sufferer. All suspected bombers from this failed attack escaped from the scenes but were later arrested. This current affair had a big impact on the police because they were one of the main forms of aid and relief for the people injured in the attacks.

  11. Problem Solution: Foundation Schools

    Stakeholder Perspectives/Ethical Dilemmas The solution preferred will determine the ethical dilemmas as it seeks to get to the bottom of both issues which face the School Board, the faculty-educators and the community. By bringing a project manager on board, the School Board will have a point of contact who will work eagerly towards realizing their goal of increased profits and expansion. Nancy Anderson will be permitted to work on what she considers is best for the the people and the faculty without the primary concern that she is forfeiting one for the other and the teachers will be permitted to deal with their concerns through the new problem - resolution procedure.

  14. Examine problems faced by sociologists when using secondary sources in their research.

    or unrepresentative data (Anderson, 1971) are therefore less credible as definitive studies. Overall, though, historical documents are vitally important to sociologists studying change over a period of time, or society during a specific period of history. Furthermore, sociologists must struggle with the issues posed by life documents when planning and executing their investigation. For example, diaries which are not intended for public consumption may be more valid as they are not written with an audience in mind, and, as a consequence, are less driven by political/ideological motives than documents which are intended for sale/circulation.

  15. Examine the problems some sociologists find when using postal questionnaires in their research.

    Indeed, if properly put together, they provide quantitative, representative data, enabling the sociologist to easily highlight trends or norms and, with sufficient data, draw more valid conclusions. However, poorly composed questionnaires can deter people from responding. Although simple initiatives such as free pens motivate people to quickly fill in their answers, Interpretivists criticise postal questionnaires for a lack of in-depth research. They claim questionnaires offer a distorted or incomplete picture of society because the answers might be deliberately misleading or dishonest.

    A current example is the importance of recommendation or word of mouth word that former clients or customers, with low frequency of purchase, are for new customers. (Boulding 2003 27) The National Quality Awards and ISO 9000: 2000 consider the theme of customer satisfaction as being essential to the performance of the company. Managing an organisation with a focus on customer guarantees the future performance of the company.

  18. Legalising Prostitution in Britain

    Prostitution can be defined as the exchange of s****l favours for combined and not sentimental or emotional interests. Although prostitution often consists in an exchange relationship between s*x and money, this is not a rule. You can trade s*x for professional favours for material goods (including money), for information, etc. (Leichtentritt 2004 349) Problem Statement It is often said that prostitution is the world's oldest profession. Do not know. But if it were, it seems incredible that in a country as old as Britain (and in many other nations) has not yet found a suitable legal reserve of that activity.

Not only this two of the children in the group I was working with wanted to get involved in the activities the rest of the class was doing.

    This, however, was not the core of his latest homily. The minister had stood before the alter this day, and, appearing to receive a great epiphany, articulated his sermon in a fervent manner. He spoke at length of the liberating confession of one's sins, to which all present agreed, making a show of nods. Conversely, the Reverend seemed to contradict himself as he concluded his sermon with a theory that one whose sins remained veiled is not one condemned. Revered minister or no, the parishioners could not dismiss this blatant reversal in his previous philosophies and teachings.

  23. Roles and Responsibilities of a Team Leader

    The leader is not merely wielding power, but appealing to the values of the follower. In this sense, values mean, "A principle, standard, or quality regarded as worthwhile or desirable."1 The British Army has promoted seven values in particular extensively, those values are: 'loyalty, duty, respect, selflessness, honour, integrity and courage.'2 These qualities, when related to a team leader in the Army, can be recognised in certain areas of their duties. A team leader is responsible not only for themselves but to the welfare of the soldiers under their command. They provide the guidance, assistance and supervision necessary for soldiers to excel and are ultimately responsible for the progression of their soldiers and their careers.

  25. A debate on the death penalty

    Alex: This is not a topic which can easily yield tangible evidence. Dr. Osborne: I beg to differ. If we saw, for example, without doing anything else, a drop in crime rates, this would mean the death sentence is working. Mr. Alex: But this could also mean other things. Maybe the drop just happens. For example, a person would steal water if he/she was in a drought. If I then instate the death penalty, and it happens to rain the next month, then obviously the crime rates involving theft of water would drop, and it would not be due to the death penalty.

Advanced level qualifications are generally studied during the ages of 16-18 after a student has taken their GCSE level qualifications. As the name suggests the level of study in the subjects is at a considerably higher level than that which the student will have studied. The amount of study involved in an A level generally means that three is sufficient challenge for the vast majority of students although some high-achievers may be entered for four (or even more).

Students can take a free-standing AS level in the first year as a separate qualification but all the marks for the Advanced level are awarded in the examinations at the end of the second year of study. Advanced level qualifications are used in university applications to allow universities to make decisions about potential students. If you have designs on a particular degree pathway, take care to find out if the subjects you will be studying at A level will be appropriate for the course.


Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Assess and evaluate the relationship between religion and social change

    "To conclude, the ideologies both show how religion can be a force for social change, yet it can also prevent it. I believe that whether religion can change society or not very much depends on the values you believe. It is shown in the arguments outlined above that depending on which society you live in religion can be a factor as to whether it changes society or not. For example Marxists believe that the bourgeoisie reproduces the interests of their own and create a false class consciousness for those who are not powerful and prevent the working class from rebelling. However, in places such as Latin America, religion can be a cause for social change to help those being oppressed within society."

  • "The European Parliament remains merely a talking shop". Discuss

    "In conclusion, it can be seen that, since the 1990s, the powers of the European Parliament have slowly increased, and its significance within the EU has also risen. However, member states are still reluctant to give the European Parliament more powers, as they fear that strengthening these powers would take away the sovereignty of national governments. When comparing the European Parliament to national governments, the European Parliament is relatively weak, as there is no solid executive configuration, and they don't have real power over the council. The democratic deficit has slightly lessened due to the fact that Parliament is elected by the citizens, but the voter apathy and low turnout appears to undermine it. However, the European Parliament does appear to make the most of its powers, and has successfully shown, through the Santer crisis in 1999 and the issue with Rocco Buttiglione, that they are capable of controlling the commission. Nevertheless, it is evident that the European Parliament isn't perhaps as authoritative as it can be: for example, the ability to dismiss individual commissioners would be a far more effective way of holding the commission to account, and would reduce the need to threaten the commission with a motion to censure due to one individual."
