    Only send your statement privately to people you trust (preferably those who aren't applying for your subject in your year)

    You are going to have to start again. There's a cache of this page and it might get picked up for plagiarism now.

    they are VERY right - please delete it, not because we don't want to see it but the fact that other people might use this and send it in before you, this means under UCAS regulations, YOU will be the one 'cheating'.
    Also, do not write anything less than the number 10 as digits
    The best piece of advice would be to get it PRINTED, then checked by you're economics teachers... then a maths teacher... then an English teacher.... and finally your UCAS advisor..... before being triple checked by your head of year
    Hope it helped

    You are technically giving your place away if you put on the internet. Take it down. People will look at yours and add more stuff to be different from you

    I have deleted your PS. Never post your PS in a public online forum!

    You will need to rewrite it from scratch due to UCAS's anti-plagiarism software and procedures.

    The only way to fix the problem is to rewrite your PS. You can use the same themes and structure but you will have to use mostly different words...
