    Is it possible?! I've done a decent-ish personal statement (best to my ability) and i fear my words are just gonna be detected as plagiarism for some random personal statement done like 30 years ago. There have been a lot of personal statements submitted so it doesnt sound too unlikely!
    I don't want to lose my chance of going to university because some stupid computor thinks i copied some (probs irrelevant) source :l

    The computer might flag it, but it then gets checked by a real life human who hopefully has some common sense.

    It doesn't need deleting. Others might find it useful too.
