    I'll look at anyones and give it a read over if they want - don't send me Geog ones though, cos I'm doing geog, and I don't want to be accused of stealing anyone's ideas!

    Go on to www.studential.com (a sort of offshoot of UKLearning) and log on to the personal statement section - you can upload your PS for a few secure reviewers to look at it. That way it won't be plagiarised and you'll get some feedback on how to compress or tighten it up.

    Did my first draft in class at school, but it was rubbish (did it by their absurd guidelines ), so I'm going to start again. Maybe this week. Maybe on January 14th.
