How important is a personal statement? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I've spent a good few weeks now tweaking my statement, adding bits in and taking bits out with the aim of perfecting it before sending it off. But am I doing all this for nothing? How likely is it that a uni won't give you an offer due to your personal statement not being good enough?

    It varies between courses and universities. Some unis will use it a lot, others may not look at it as much. Even if it's not looked at now, if you miss your offer, PSs can become very important then
