    Hi so I got offers from 5 of the top universities in the UK to study computer science.
    During my first year I was forced to leave due to severe health issues and issues at home.

    I am currently an IT consultant at a Microsoft partner firm. During my 6 months I have already attained 5 high level Microsoft certifications (3xMTA 2xMCSA).

    I am applying back to University for 2017. Do i just resubmit my personal statement that was highly successful before or do I alter it do I add my current career. if so what approach should I take?

    There is nothing to stop you resubmitting your old PS (provided that you haven't posted it online etc. to avoid getting picked up by plagiarism software). Your name and DOB will match your previous application so there shouldn't be any issues.

    I would really recommend adding at least some information about what you have gained over the past 6 months, since you've gained additional experience and qualifications so this can only benefit your application.*
