    How are you finding the start to the year? I've had 4 very boring lessons so far. Not really done much.

    As for content? Quite boring, it's all just been basic "inform us about the latest info". But class sizes are better which is great. I'm sure it'll get better.

    A good first attempt, according to the PS helper. I had the right idea but needed to explain why I want to study my subject more in terms of actual content and give some relevant examples in certain places. I also need to shuffle a few things about, get rid of one EC sentence completely and make the intro/conclusion more punchy/powerful. I'm really glad I got the feedback, as my second draft is looking better for sure. Have you used it yet?

    Pretty much the exact feedback I got but in a mathsy context of course. The TSR PS help is so good

    Good luck with your second one, it gets kind of easier after the first draft imo. I have, got pretty much the same feedback although my first draft didn't have a conclusion and I needed to take out a paragraph because I went on a tangent, so I just replaced it with a EC and hobbies paragraph. I haven't got a lot of time to perfect it so I'm going to start giving it to my teachers to read through and stuff.

    Is it fine if in my personal statement I use:
    I'm, I'd etc?
    It lets me save some characters but I'm not sure if I should do that.

    Hmmm, I probably wouldn't personally unless absolutely unavoidable. It comes across a bit informal, which isn't really what you want.

    It's a long shot, but I don't suppose anyone doing english is going to the gothic literature workshop at Lancaster University on the 27th?

    That's what I thought.
    Anyway, we will see when I give my PS to the teacher, I just hope she doesn't say it's completely rubbish.

    I'm hoping to use the PS help service but should I give them my first draft? I'm not sure if they'll look at a revised copy of it since there's a lot of statements in the queue.

    I was hoping to have my teacher look at it then give it in after they're happy with it.

    It depends on the subject and the number of PS helpers available. My redraft was checked the same day I submitted it a few weeks back
