    Hi.

    I need some advice/help on what i should write about in my personal statment for the HND computing. I've fill out the UCAS form on the internet apart from the personal statment section.

    You need to make sure this bit is perfect cos otherwise the universities dont want to know. Put in about any voluntary work that you've done in that area cos that always impresses them, and most importantly dont lie about anything incase they interview you. It may be an idea to keep a copy of the personal statement aswell so you can read what you put if you get interviewed later on. I applied last year to Manchester Uni to do BSc in Comp Sci and got interviewed and found that the interview was based entirely on the personal statement. Use powerful words that stand out and make sure it sounds like your really keen to be accepted on to the course. I have probably pointed out the obvious but i hope it helps .

    Thanks for your help Steve. I have completed the personal statement and managed to include everything that UCAS was looking for. I have a feeling the the interviews would be based on the personal statement.
