how to go about writing a mini personal statement watch

    • Thread Starter

    this is for applying to become a prefect. We've been told to write 1/4 - 1/3 of an A4 sheet :/
    Any ideas on what to say/structure it? cheers.

    You don't need anything such as further reading as you're not applying for an individual discipline, of course.

    I'd have 2 main sections:

    Academic History - What skills you have learnt
    Extracurricular Activities - What skills you have learnt

    Obviously, you don't want to put "Doing Maths at "" Level means im really good at multiplication in my head yeaaaaaaaaaa!!"

    You might also want to have some sort of introduction and a conclusion as to why you deserve the title (but not why others don't deserve it -.-)
