    Usually it's easier to write the introduction to your personal statement last, so I'd suggest focusing on getting the rest of it done, then come back to the intro later (if you haven't already started that is). Also, don't start with generic statements like 'I have been keenly interested in physics from a young age', as they are really common and unis favour originality

    Have you heard of our brilliant PS Builder tool?

    We'll guide you through the process of writing your UCAS personal statement for undergraduate study at a UK university. We'll get you to think about what course you're applying for, first writing notes about your experience, knowledge and hobbies, and then guide you through a suggested structure to actually write it. Afterwards, we'll check it against UCAS limitations and common errors and mistakes to help you write the best personal statement to reflect your interest and experiences.

    Start out by making lists of work experience/voluntary work, hobbies/interests, extra curricular activities. And then you can build on these lists to make paragraphs.
    Include a paragraph talking about how each of your AS/Alevels link to physics/have fuelled your interest in physics.
    I did my introduction last.
    Also, remember to keep linking- everything- back to physics! 😊
    If you have any other questions/need someone to proofread your ps, I'll be happy help ! Good luck

    Please don't offer to review PSs over PM. TSR does not allow this, as there is no protection from plagiarism through this method. There is a private forum on TSR where applicants can get their PSs reviewed. If you are interested in joining this service (and are at uni already) then let me know
