    No, it's not too late. You have until January or February (I can't remember which). Get started ASAP though.

    Mine took an evening to write then my tutor made a couple of small revisions and that was it. It was good enough to get offers from all my choices and an interview at Cambridge so you'll be fine.

    I started a few weeks ago but I've only done about half of it. It's harder than I thought it would be.

    Deifinitely not too late - I wrote mine in one evening, redrafted (cut down sentences) in another, then added one sentence/ few capital letters from teacher recommendation before it was sent to UCAS - between me handing in my first draft of my personal statement and sending off my application there was two weeks, however it could have been achieved in a lot less
