    Hello can anyone say the clear differences between: Personal statement, motivational letter, cover letter, academic statement?

    I have written a personal statement but all letters seem very similar and I would like to know what clearly defines and distinguishes it from the other letters

    Your personal statement is you selling yourself, generally when applying for unis. (although, I think some 6th forms / colleges require them) A cover letter is usually required when you apply for jobs when they ask you to send a CV instead of filling in an application form. It would just state that you're applying for job x and enclosed is your CV and a few other bits.

    Not heard of an academic statement; but it doesn't sound that different to a personal statement.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
