    Hi, I'm doing my personal statement to apply for colleges and I'm struggling with what to put.heres what I've put so far.
    I currently attend Bramhall High School where I’m studying for 7 GCSE subjects: Maths, English, Combined Science, History, Business, Computer Science and German.
    I particularly enjoy computer science, as I enjoy the challenge of creating code for specific tasks. I have attended coder dojo which is a regular weekend club for coding. I regularly attend after school classes on maths and science. Business studies has helped me to understand the importance of businesses in the real world. Also, the importance of maths in the finance side of business.
    Having a YouTube channel where I stream myself playing video games has allowed me to improve my skills with communicating with people, I had over 360 followers. I also upload videos to the channel, to do this I need to edit the videos using Sony Vegas and also create thumbnails using photoshop.
    I play 5 a side football most weekends with my friends and I’m organising for us to join a league when our GCSEs are over.
    I intend to go onto college after finishing school and study A levels in…
    I like watching films and documentaries, listening to music, playing football, table tennis and computer games. I am really interested in current affairs especially in foreign countries and especially enjoy understanding the stories behind the stories

    Very good, you have a lot to offer - you just need to reword the content - I can give suggestions on this when I am on a laptop or computer next.

    The only additions you need are subject-specific motivation, but that's fine if you don't know at the time of writing, just something to think about soon

    And also why you are interested in a specific college, and if you have any school council or prefect experience then add that on there, if you don't then don't worry, not a must
