    I've written (and helped others with) UCAS personal statements and the structure should be similar
    You should identify activities you have done, reflect upon them (how they helped you develop as a student/person, why you thought it was important, how you contributed etc) and then link it to your course/subjects.

    These 'activities' can be extracurriculars, hobbies, or things within school such as projects, or anything else relevant. E.g. If you've done a charity walk, led a study group, researched a particular area of a subject, joined a sports team.

    As long as you stick to the 1) statement 2) reflection 3)link to course, those 2,000 words should fly by pretty quickly 😊
