    Hey. You can't really expect people to put the PSs up here, but just start off with why you want to study geog, things you've read, extra-cirriculars, work exp etc etc. I'm sure Sian's said all this before!

    There are quite a few websites where you can view Personal Statements from each subject, and it's quite useful if you want to know what a "good" PS looks like.

    I'd also be very surprised if those about to apply to university put up their Personal statement, as people could copy or take advantage of excellent quotes and ideas etc.

    Don't let people copy your PS people!

    I'm not sure. Are you using the paper form or EAS then? I now have 0 lines available but it fits (just cut out some waffle)

    How much has your PS changed since I, er, critiqued it SianY? (http://www.uk-learning.net/showthread.php?t=36272) Being a nosy so-and-so, I'd be interested to know .

    The first and last sentences are always the hardest aspect of PS writing Aimee123 (sorry, I've forgotten your real name) so I'd suggest writing the middle bits first. Also don't worry too much - having read at least half my old school year's personal statements I can tell you that most people begin and end in the same, rather boring way (I had a 'different' opening sentence but concluded mundanely).

    My PS is now 100% different! Your advice was good though but i decided to completely start again and compared to my old one i'm really happy with my new version! (Did you have to put that link in, it's embarassing! )

    70% of it is about geography, 30% is extra-curric stuff. Do you think that's ok??

    Yeah, I'd say that was about the same balance as mine
