    Lol. don't worry, you'll get it done when you have the pressure of the upcoming external deadline.
    When we did ours (last year), I couldn't be bothered and wasn't 100% on what I wanted to do, so by the time I started my FIRST draft, it was like December... I got a LOT of nagging from staff; I must have been the last one to send off my UCAS, but I wasn't at any disadvantage after that. So take your timee, perfect it as much as you can. As long as it gets submitted by the UCAS (January) deadline, you should be fine Good luck

    Thankyou so much! Does this even go for the Russel group universities?

    All unis (except for Oxbridge and for medicine) offer equal consideration, as long as you apply on or before 15th January

    I haven't started mine yet. I have too much work to do at the moment. I plan to start it either the week coming, or the week after. Whenever I get these couple of essays done and handed in

    Trust me sweetheart, TSR is not the best to go by, half the people on here probably completed their final draft during their summer holidays.

    I sent my application off after Christmas, does it effect your chances? Not in the slightest.

    But you know what may effect your chances? If you rush your personal statement, take less time to perfect it, and submit a version you aren't happy with.
