    I've been given out a form to help me prepare for my personal statement.
    It asks: Have you been given any awards related toacademic achievement either at your previous school or at the sixth form?

    Does attendance awards at secondary school count? Lmao.
    Or being prefect count? I have no other achievements apart from those.

    It also asks: What work are you most proud of and why?
    I can not think of a single thing. It concerns me.
    (will my GCSE art work count?) xD.

    Is anyone having trouble preparing their personal statement?

    Lol, none. I'm such a lazy person.
    Although I was signed onto Lloyds Junior Scholars scheme. If that counts... all I got given was a certificate.

    If it's in any way relevant and you can talk about your experience/what you gained from doing it, include it! Same goes for other things you've done.

    Yeah and I've got my Kellogg's level 2 Swimming certificate so we're both successful.

    I wouldn't worry too much.. I didn't have any awards or anything.. If you don't have anything to say for a question then just don't include it they are just ideas/prompts..
    Don't stress about writing your cv.. just write as if noone is reading it and you'll get some little gems in there.. you'll do many drafts and thats a good thing

    Don't worry too much about extra curricualars. Your PS should mainly be about your interest in the subject and why you want to study it at uni. Your ECs need only be a short para of about 100 words with a focus on transferable skills gained. Prefect is good for this.
