Anybody have any experience of writing personal statements for things like UCAS?
I’m entirely clueless as to what I should be putting on there, how to structure it etc.
It’s for a BA Hons in Youth Work and Community Development.
Any help muchos appreciated.March 24, 2009 at 7:49 pm #1195573O-DParticipant
No idea, mate.
Try asking at The Student Room: Student Guides, Help, Advice & Community there always seems to be someone who can help there.March 25, 2009 at 2:21 am #1195574uglyprettytrashParticipant
I can’t even remember what I put it in mine, but I think it’s mainly just what have you done in the past that would help with the course, and why you want to do the course and why you’ll stick it out. Just makes sure all the grammar and spelling are oreyt and you should be fine 🙂March 25, 2009 at 8:25 am #1195572pixiegirlParticipant
There are loads of sites now to help you with this kind of thing. Sadly it was so long ago for me I had forgotten I even had to write a personal statement, never mind what it actually said.
This site has a guide to writing them as well as some samples to read. I think there are online sites which will work with you to get it right, for a cost obviously, if you’re really struggling.March 25, 2009 at 12:15 pm #1195564
I’m at uni and there is no way they could have even read my personal statement. It basically said I have spent the last two years doing nothing but I like Roman stuff.
If you want a hand though send me a message and I’ll see what I can do.March 25, 2009 at 12:34 pm #1195571DaftFaderParticipantelretardo87;315310 wrote:I’m at uni and there is no way they could have even read my personal statement.

I’m at one of the top twenty-five unis in the world and I had to hide the fact that I got expelled from school and spent two years putting on raves and getting caned before I even applied.March 26, 2009 at 1:58 pm #1195569
cheers for the offers of help everyone, i’ve got it sorted now though. think it’s pretty good, my bro just finished 3 years at manchester n reckoned it was good.
i’d put it up but they check the internet to see if you’ve copied it and it might lead em to think i copied it off hereMarch 26, 2009 at 2:15 pm #1195567boothy;315643 wrote:i’d put it up but they check the internet to see if you’ve copied it and it might lead em to think i copied it off here
Or even worse they might read the rest of your posts….March 26, 2009 at 3:18 pm #1195570elretardo87;315644 wrote:Or even worse they might read the rest of your posts….
shit yeah that really wouldn’t be good
my posts are a mix of dead baby jokes, posts about drug use and posts about illegal activities.
