Hi,

really need urgent help with ucas personal statement!
I am reapplying for September 2015 as I recently left uni in the first term this year because I did not like the area. Do I put in my personal statement why I left, what I learnt, what I am to do in gap year?

Cant find ins any help and obviously I have to change the tenses in my personal statement to make it relevant. Just wondering if I should dwell on the past in the statement or not!


Thanks

Don't dwell on the past.

Your PS should be about what is PULLING you to the new course/uni not what pushed you from your old course.

The most you should mention is that you've learnt from the experience and have done more research into the courses/universities you're applying to this time.

You *should* however make sure to include your time at uni in your education section.

Agreeing with PG here - reflection is a big thing and shows you really want to apply for what you are now. I don't think you ever really know if the course is right for you until you start but not mentioning how the experience changed you would be a shame
