UCAS Personal Statement
You will spend a lot more time on the content, matching it to your university and college choices.
Try to keep the format simple:
You are applying to University so… no spelling mistakes or grammatical errors!
Your statement must make sense and be compelling to read!
The UCAS website provides a good overview under the Student Apply/How To apply section. There are a number of other resources that can help you, but do not be tempted to use somebody else’s work from whatever source. Read the UCAS warning on Similarity Detection on the website.
Focus on what you are going to university for. The emphasis must be on your academic attributes and skills, whatever else you might want to do while you are there!
Once you have completed a draft hand it in to your tutor, family, Mr Renton or Mr Suter to check. Revising and reworking your statement will take a number of attempts, but remember that it is your statement and only accept advice if you want to.
