I'm reapplying to university this year and wanted to know if it is possible for me to use the same personal statement I used during last years application cycle. I'm applying for same course but my uni options differ slightly from last year, so wanted to know if I need to write a new personal statement or if I can use the same one again this year, thanks!

You won’t be able to as the UCAS plagiarism detector will at it as plagiarised and unis will think you copied someone else

You can use the same one, you’re also given the same ucas ID as last year

yes to the people who say you cna use the same one, but think whether you need to amend in any way.

Yes you can reuse your statement. Yes it will get picked up by the plagiarism detection software. It will then be checked by a person who will realise it's you again so it won't affect your application. You should consider updating it to reflect what you've done in the last year though.

When you send off your application and they give you your track login it reverts to you previous ucas ID
