    I've been asked to submit a "200 word article on an issue that has affected your local area" for a Journalism, Film and Television Studies BA as part of my application.

    Now, 200 words is nothing but I'm a little bit confused about what they want. I've written an article in the style of a local newspaper report on pedestrian crossing for local schools, using some government figures on road traffic accidents involving children and a quote from the local MP (a quote she gave to her official website.)

    Will this be the sort of thing they're looking for? Or are they looking for something more based on my personal opinions on an issue? Or something else?

    Any help appreciated,

    Ask the uni. They're probably most likely to want something in journalism style, so a newspaper article, but they might equally want something a bit more formal. It's best to find out in advance, rather than finding out after you were rejected for doing it wrong.
