    In my experience UCAS asks you to resubmit the personal statement in clearing anyway - however this was several years ago so may not be correct at the time of writing.

    I actually personally ended up applying for some unrelated courses, the ones unrelated to the personal statement just having me speak with them directly and I think one asked me to send a pseudo-PS/statement of purpose related to that course.

    Yeah you can. Hope you don't mind me using your thread to ask, but will I need to write a new personal statement if I miss my places for sport science and apply for physiotherapy through clearing?

    There currently only 15 universities for physiotherapy in clearing, but yes a new statement would probably be necessary.
