I would like to put to use this knowledge to do my Bachelors in Social Care in XXX to enhance my concrete knowledge with quality education and standard degree. I believe that this subject would be invaluable in helping me achieve the objectives in my life.

After my higher secondary education I took 2years of Computer programming course and joined my current job. My experience has helped me to understand the different facts of living. I have learned a lot from my job. I have become more efficient and sincere to every task that I take. The most important part that I learnt is "the team work". With a good team spirit you can face every challenge that comes to your way.

All these experiences have given me valuable insight into the academic course that I want to enroll in. With the knowledge and degree from XXX I see myself ..........................

You describe yourself and your accomplishments in vague, general terms that are utterly unmemorable. Deal in specifics if you want the admissions people to take your essay seriously. For instance:

"I got an opportunity to come across different underprivileged adolescents, especially those with a history of behavioral and emotional problems." Describe some of these adolescents, the problems they had, how you helped them, what you learned from them. Tell a gripping story that makes the reader want to keep reading.

"I believe that this subject would be invaluable in helping me achieve the objectives in my life. " What objectives are these? And how will the subject help you?

"My experience has helped me to understand the different facts of living" How? Again, specific, detailed narratives are good.

"During my work period I got an opportunity to closely observe every political, criminal and social issues of my country. All these experiences have given me valuable insight into the academic course that I want to enroll in." See above.

You say that "During my work period I got an opportunity to closely observe every political, criminal and social issues of my country." Surely, you must have some stories to tell! As Sean says, details and examples are what this essay needs most.
