I have heard that they are seeking academic potential.
I have no idea what they're seeking exactly. I'm just hoping I'm it.
Sent my ucas forms through yesterday. My personal statement was what it says on the tin - 'personal', as in not solely about the subject, but also how I felt about the subject and what made me want to take it etc, written in my own style.
personal statement isn't really much of a big deal at oxbridge if you ask me. It's far more important to have a good academic record and have a good interview performance
Is it a good idea to write anything in the 'optional additional personal statement' box in the Cambridge application form which is additional to your ucas personal statement?
