    Well, I could easily say it's been half a year since I've been on a TSR Year X thread.

    Pandora, UsyCool1, how've you both been?
    This is a nice surprise!

    I've been good thanks, how about you? Did your AS results go to plan?

    I've been brilliant aye, written my personal statement, AS-level's went exactly to plan thankfully (bar one Maths module which I'll retake to turn the overall grade from a high C to an A), and I've spent the past few weeks catching up the partying I missed over exam season haha!

    How about you?

    Helloo Year 13's.. exciting isn't it! I'm relatively new to these forums, but I was wondering if people had started thinking about their Personal Statements? oooh one more thing if anybody is thinking of studying Media what unis are they looking to go too? Thanks
    Welcome to the thread!

    I've already done my first draft of my PS (I had to, it wasn't of my own accord haha). It wasn't great though, so I'll have to do another one sometime soon. Have you started it yet?

    Neither can I. I've been rejected by every company I've talked to.

    Great news! I'm glad about that - which module was it in Maths? I'm glad someone has been partying, I've been stuck inside for most of the holidays.

    I'm really happy about my AS levels except from English, which I got a B in. I'll have to see if I can get a remark on that and if it'll be a positive outcome. Of not I'll probably resit that exam next year and tame a gap year. Hey ho, either way it should work out fine! I've done my 1st draft of my statement, so I only have to amend that and edit to make it the best possible. So yeah, pretty happy at the moment!

    Fair enough, my school makes us get it done in the holidays, going into lower sixth?
    My school hasn't even mentioned it, just that we have to do it. And no, I'm going into year 13.

    I don't think it will be relevant. I really need something though, my grades are letting me down.

    There isn't any real bit in particular that I'm stuck on, but I've had a few questions on perpendicular vectors and intersection points in which my answers seem a bit odd, so I'm just brushing up on those parts so that I can be sure I'm not missing anything.

    Oh haha well I haven't been asked too yet, just thought I'd start earlier! What sort of thing do you have to include/how do you structure it? I think it will be helpful to a lot of people on here! x

    Cool, I'm so far thinking Cambridge, UCL, Durham, Exeter and LSE (although that might change significantly )

    Good luck!!

    Haha, hopefully I can achieve those predicted grades but I hate my username; it makes me look too arrogant.

    It's a shame that you can't make any puns out of your username; J_95 isn't exactly pun-material, if I say so myself.

    True that, free prescriptions would be a very useful thing to have! I'll just apply to Edinburgh and Glasgow anyway I think- if I don't get in I don't get in, I'm probably going to reapply next year anyway

    Well for mine, I started with a paragraph about why I wanted to study English. Then I wrote a bit about my A Level texts, followed by a paragraph on wider reading (and maybe another). Unlike a lot of people I don't have any extra curriculars that are relevant, so I have a bit more room for Englishy stuff.

    I'm unsure about Media, but you could try looking in the TSR PS archive?
