    Hmmmm... Pretty sure you can maybe change it a tiny bit
    Yeah I will, there's a bit more I can put in now and some things I'll take out, I'll talk about different books etc but the introduction and things will still end up pretty similar probably

    Wait until you're trying to get your personal statement down to 47 lines, that was even more annoying for me than the character limit and that's saying something!

    :eek: You're organised! It is best to do it before school gets in the way I guess, I couldn't decide what I wanted to do last year though so submitted it about a week before the deadline in January

    Wow, that's a lot! I presume you're over on characters as well then? Try and get them down first and then hopefully you'll be a bit closer on the line front. After that, it can sometimes help if you just reorder words, eg if you have a list of three if you put the words in a different order they might go on the lines differently and you lose one :yep:

    True, still organised though! I'll probably try and get mine off as soon as your deadline's out the way this year... Try and make your school write your reference soon by the way, you have no idea how stressful it gets when they still haven't done it a week before the deadline! :unimpressed:

    Still haven't thought about my personal statement :s

    Does anyone know if it will be better to get it done early, and just add in "I'm planning to do some experience at x uni in october", or whether to wait until I've done the work experience and send my application in November?

    Unless you need to be done by the early deadline I'd say you'd be better to wait a bit, then you can talk about what you learnt from the experience which will be much better

    I'm sure they'll love you for that! Might make them get it done though just to shut you up :lol:

    Hmmmm... They won't mind! Although my fm teacher doesn't know me... The way it works here is all teachers write a bit, and then form and head of year fix it into a reference

    That was our system, but my physics teacher was away for a bit then my head of year and the deputy head both thought the other one was doing it then my predicted grades changed... Yeah, that's the problem with new teachers I guess, they'll get to know you soon enough though :yep:
