    My PS:
    admissions tutors are looking for people who are genuinely motivated to study the subject, so write about what your reasons are for wanting to study engineering, and give evidence of that, eg books or articles you've read, lectures you've been to, work experience you've done, and what you've learned from it.
    Have a look at university website, there is usually a section on what they look for in a personal statement.
    Some useful articles:

    good luck!

    Engineering is all about solving problems. You left it very late to start working on this. Did you make the deadline?
