    Hey, I'm in year 13, and since I'm applying to uni this year, I'm at the point of having to write my personal statements? Has anyone else started or even finished their personal statements?

    I've basically finished mine, need to edit it and take my teacher's corrections into account, plus add one more book.

    I'm on draft 5 now.

    Finished my second draft last night. However with minimal support from my college for our UCAS applications, I don't really know how good it is to be honest lol. Hoping to get it perfected and sent off by early-mid Oct, though.

    I'm so happy mine is done, and it only took 3 drafts!! I have to have my UCAS submitted tomorrow because I'm an early applicant and my college sets our deadline but it felt like such a weight of my shoulders when my biology teacher said she really liked it and that it was really good
