    Is there anything in your application to imply that you are less organised than the average applicant?

    Is disorganisation likely to result in your rejection?

    If your teacher is so keen to make the point that you're particularly well organised then ask them to include that in your reference - in your PS it's likely to sound like unjustified bragging about a trait that isn't particularly required for any degree.

    Those were just the examples he gave me, but there's nothing telling them that i'm disorganised. he said to talk about my self so i didn't really understand it

    Teachers don't always know what they're talking about when it comes to a PS. If you feel like following his advice would make your PS less reflective of you personally then ignore him.

    You can always ask for someone here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...SR-PS-reviewer to review your PS.

    What do you do socially might be a starting point. Then look at how you balance and organise your time to fit everything you do. Good luck
