Why are you applying for your chosen course?Why does this subject interest you?Why do you think you’re suitable for this course?

A few tips I've picked up:
-Don't do the cliche 'I've always wanted to be a filmmaker' thing.
-Give examples- 'I am a good working in a team': give an example of when you did this. e.g. 'I work in a team when working my part time job at Tescos'
-Show how you've spread your interest in film further than just the classroom. i.e. 'I loved film studies so much at AS level that I decided to base my EPQ around the subject and researched Music Video for my project'.

Hasn't your college given you any support on writing personal statements? I just finished AS and we've already been bombarded with advice:/ Ah well, good luck on results day! Where are you hoping to study?
