I have always had a keen interest in the subject of History, and I consider myself to be a highly motivated student. I feel I would benefit from studying this course at university so I can broaden my knowledge and benefit from it in the future. My A level History has allowed me to do what I enjoy most by researching and analysing sources from the past while developing my own ideas and opinions on that source. I am very keen to develop these skills further. My other subjects have also benefited me. English has enabled me to experience writers such as Shakespeare, and Alice Walker whilst similarly in Classics with playwrights Virgil and Homer. Furthermore, English literature has allowed me to analyse and communicate clearly in my writing, whereas Classics has helped me to improve both my essay writing and research skills. Whilst studying History, I have particularly enjoyed studying the British side of political history because I found it both interesting and relevant. I have also taken an interest in the effect WW1 had on the political parties, especially the downfall of the Liberal party, as well as the rise of the Labour party during the same period. I am passionate about this subject and have thoroughly enjoyed what I have studied so far. I wish to continue it further and I believe that by studying History at University I would have the chance to broaden my knowledge and interest on the subject further. For my work placement I undertook a role of a sales assistant for Superdrug. I was required to undertake tasks such as dealing with the public, stock taking and cleaning duties. For this I needed to be motivated, reliable, and confident went dealing with the public. I currently work for Clinton Cards as a Saturday assistant. This has further improved my confidence and I have dealt with members of the public of all ages. Furthermore, it has improved my communication skills and I have learnt to work well in a team. I am trusted to deal with money and I particularly believe my experiences in the workplace to have taught me valuable organisational skills that has given me the ability to relate well with people, which I believe will benefit me in the world of work and university. Early next year I will be walking the long March for the third time in a row. It consists of a thirty mile walk, in which you raise money for Christian aid, and so far I have raised over one hundred pounds. This shows the commitment that I have for this cause and also the endurance I needed to finish it. My personal interests include football, badminton, and fishing. I play badminton every Monday night and have been doing so for the previous two years. In those two years I have learnt a variety of skills and I find it a way to interact with people, as it is open to the public for all ages. Also In my spare time, I listen to music to help me relax, and I attend concerts wherever possible. I normally fish with my Dad and have entered several competitions in the past and find the sport both exciting and rewarding. I am looking forward to studying History at University as there are many topics I would like to cover, and I favour the idea of meeting new people, all from different backgrounds. I am optimistic about the future and I look forward to the challenges and opportunities University will bring me. I believe I have a lot to offer to university life in my desire and passion to work, as well as my commitment to succeed. Although I am uncertain about a particular career, I am confident by taking this course many career paths will open up before me.
