    A lot of people said that if you're reapplying you can still use all/the majority of your old statement if you wanted to. However, I was reading Lancaster's admission policy and it states "Lancaster Medical School is notified by UCAS if they find evidence of plagiarism in
    the personalstatement of any of the applicants to our medical degree programme. This might occur
    if an applicant copies sections of another’s personal statement or if they re-apply without
    significantly revising their own personal statement
    . Lancaster Medical School reserves the right to
    automatically reject such applications"

    so you can't just use the same PS or it will be plagiarism?
    Well, you can't really plagiarise your own work.

    As others have suggested, I would contact the admissions office.

    According to this training thing we had to do, you can self-plagiarise. It's more an essay thing though; UCAS plagiarism checks won't pick up your old PS as your UCAS number reverts to the one from last year when you re-apply.
    I used most of my first PS when applying for the second time.

    Hi everyone! I'm a re-applicant too
    So just to be clear... can I use the majority of my PS from last year? I'm only changing a few paragraphs (and adding a paragraph!)
    Good luck to all

    Hiya can anyone help me? I was wondering who I should ask to write my reference. I shadowed a gp for two weeks and he has told me he would write me a really good reference, or should I get someone like me old head teacher? Because she knows me academically, although he (the gp) will know what to he needs to write for medicine?

    Your reference should be academic and from someone who knows you well. You could ask the GP to write a short reference and ask your teacher to incorporate parts of it, if you wanted, but a reference written by someone who doesn't know your academic capabilities or has known you only two weeks is unlikely to be particularly useful.

    Hey! Not really been sticking to it too strictly if I'm honest. Been taking it gradually over the month and since KAPLAN I've stepped it up only slightly as it's been difficult around work. I've got annual leave from tomorrow though, so just plan on going hard from then on haha.

    That's great! I'm hoping to do one mock a day before the exam now I'm doing the quizzes and have done one mock

    I think the online plan is really good! Did you have this last year?

    Is your exam still on the 3rd? mines still for the 4th lol
