Planning your personal statement
In the last step we looked at the kinds of things to include on a personal statement, and an example.
A good way to get started with your personal statement is to make a plan with the points you want to talk about. Thinking about your own application, make notes under the following headings. Later in the week we’ll start writing the statement and will look at useful language so you can complete your application. In this planning stage remember you are not writing the whole statement, you just want to think of the ideas for your statement. If you need more help with ideas, you can use this document from UCAS to help you.
