Hypothetical Personal Statement - Have absolutely no clue :/ Watch

    So as part of my project at college, we have an entire unit dedicated to progression from this course, and we have to write a draft personal statement. We've been given loads of information about what to include, and been given blocking sheets to break down that information.
    Now I just need to write it. The problem comes in that a) I have absolutely no idea how to start it straight off, and b) PSs are supposed to be directed at a specific course, but as this is technically only hypothetical (and I have no idea what I'd want to to at uni), I have no idea how I can be "excited and enthusiastic about" a course that, well, doesn't exist if you get my drift?
    Help?

    With regard to the intro, it's best to leave that til last or write a really basic one at first. As for which subject, I would just pick one. Makes sense to do one of your subjects and write a PS for that. Or talk to someone at your college and say you're not sure what you want to study and see what they say
