    This is the third time just today I've seen someone post their statement...please don't, it'll be picked up by UCAS when you submit any part of this as 'plagiarism detection'.

    TSR has its own rate-your-statement system, see this article: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4237154

    To avoid the damage I would recommend editing your post to just delete the whole thing, then after 12 hours search Google for one of your sentences. If it links you back here, it's too late and it's been 'cached', so you won't be able to use any of what you've written.

    Nono, you don't need to do that at all! You just need to remove your PS (which looks like a mod has already done for you).

    You don't have to withdraw your application at all, you just can't publicly share your personal statement. If the statement you shared before was already sent off, it shouldn't have been long enough to cache.

    You can reinstate your application by calling UCAS, and then send an email to your choices saying that your application has been reinstated.
