Do you think I can use a Politics personal statement for something else? Watch

    Basically, I've seen that Social Policy at Bristol is in UCAS Extra. I have offers but I might decline them to go Bristol as I was hoping to get there through adjustment anyway. Do you think they'd accept my previous Politics statement for Social Policy? Or would I need a whole new one?

    Although they're advertising as open for Extra you shouldn't apply ANYWHERE through extra without speaking to them first, confirming that they're still open for applications and that you are in with a good chance of an offer.

    When you call to ask them about the above you can also ask them whether they would like you to send a new PS through directly as your current PS is tailored to politics.

    Do they allow people to send statements through separately?

    Some unis will some wont - that's why you need to ask them directly whether they will allow this in your case.

    I'd use this time to write an alternative personal statement, just in case.
