    Do you need a personal statement for that?
    Yup! I need to get mine checked I don't think you get to choose an interview date though.

    Ugh, so much effort- why not just applying using a paper application? . Or do you have to apply via UCAS Progress?

    Really dudee? It's so much easier to apply via ucas you only have to click a few buttons right? If you apply through paper you have to send it and everything That's more effort imo

    Paper applications are NOT fun. The sixth form I applied to used one and it's much more tedious than online ones:yep:

    Ah I'm in greenhead almost everyday so there's no real hassle . What did you think of the open evening by the way? And maybe but it would probably take me ages to come up with a personal statement

    You're lucky we're forced to come up with a personal statement For our school 'mock interviews.' And the open evening was really great I thought it was a nice atmosphere the teachers made you feel really inspired to learn I hope I get a place ^-^

    That sounds awful, good luck.As if you have mock interviews, do you go to a feeder school? Yep I loved the environment too and the people who I don't know all seemed cool too . I'm sure you will- do you want a late or early interview?

    Yes I really do have mock interviews! But what's worse is that we are interviewed by an 'outside employer' even though most of us are only applying to sixth form I don't go to a feeder school, and I agree I'm so excited to meet everyone As for interviews I have no preference I don't think it will make a difference.

    Yes Well you still have a lot of time applications aren't acknowledged until January. Personal statement doesn't take that long though! I completed mine in one lesson.

    So many have completed it but I don't know I guess I want it to stand it out but just don't know plus I don't even do any extra curricular activities so I don't know what to put in it

    Heyy I doubt they care that much it's only sixth form after all it's not like we're applying to uni. Have you ever had any responsibilities in school like prefect, librarian, student council, member of charity appeal? You could write about that I wrote about being a student librarian and doing race for life. Have you done anything like that? If not you could always talk about the opportunities you want to take in the future

    It doesn't matter just right it A couple of my friends have wrote about stuff they did as far back as in primary school and things they were only distantly related to. I don't think you're expected to have loads of fancy extracurricular stuff it's probably more important to get your passion for your chosen subjects across in the interview

    That's true - I'm currently in the process of writing up my first draft so hopefully I'll get it done by the end of this week at least that's what I'm hoping for, got mocks to revise for too so I'll see how I get on - how's life anyway? You had your mocks yet?
