    Hello! I read that using Personal Statement Help here is safe and that only I, the helper and other moderators can see it. But I know that, before reading a personal statement, universities try to find out whether the PS is copied from someone else or already exists on the internet.
    I'm thinking about submitting my PS for a review, but I'm concerned universities will see it (?)
    thank you x

    There's no way they can see it. PS help is totally free and a private forum, so UCAS and universities can't detect any of it.

    No, they won't, it will be fine. So long as you post it in the right place, and not on the public forum like a lot of people always do

    No, or the PS helper service wouldn't be offered, would it? Use some common sense.

    It's totally legitimate and safe.

    It's also undergoing a bit of a revamp at the moment and isn't available right now, I'm afraid.

    I'm afraid I don't. It's a bit up in the air.

    As far as I'm aware, it's never going to be back up and running in the same way it was in previous years, due to high demand, TSR are changing the way things work- I'm not sure how much I'm supposed to say on the public forums, but hopefully TSR will make an announcement soon.
