    So i have recently cancelled all of my applications, here's why.
    1. My school was really pushing with submissions
    2. I am applying for a veterinary nursing degree which requires two weeks of work experience in a practice
    3. I already submitted my application BEFORE i had finished my work experience (I will be doing one more week in the october half term) I have done three weeks experience (2 in different animal environments, 1 in a practice).
    4. I now know that the admissions wanted all work experience to be completed prior to submission, however the actual deadline is not until Jan 15th.

    As the RVC did not give me a straight answer as to whether my October work would be considered, i have decided to cancel all of my submissions and resubmit them in November when i will have completed my experience ( Ucas have told me i can do that?)
    So my question is ; Because i have to create whole new application, do i have to create a whole new personal statement? (dear god i hope not)

    You need to speak to UCAS about this.

    Technically they don't allow you to cancel an application and reapply within the same cycle. If you've been poorly advised then they are likely to be sympathetic but you need to speak to them directly to be certain they wont simply cancel you reapplication when it arrives.

    You can reuse a PS if it is your own work and hasn't been shared with anyone outside your application.

    Once you've put in and reflected on your latest work experience, there's a good chance your PS will have chopped and changed a fair amount, anyway.

    I've seen people say a couple of times on here that if your PS gets flagged for plagiarism an actual person will look through it, at which point they'll see that it was you who wrote it in the first place (and especially in your situation I can see them justfying it), but I don't know for sure if this is true.

    I have just rung up to check that it is still possible for me to reapply and they said that because it was in 14 days of me submitting my application that it is indeed possible for me to reapply.

    Oh good! And yes it has changed slightly to include my new work experience, but to know its still able submit is such a relief! thank you
