    For the question "Why have you deсided to choose this course", am i suppose to consider as reasons the high qullikation of tutors or partnership programs and so on? OR just it is enough to say that i love this realm of course?

    So your personal statement needs to included why you are passionate about the course and why you should be chosen to study it. You need to include any work experience and extra-curricular activities that apply to the course and help to emphasise your passion for it. You need to talk about your subjects and how they relate and can help to the course at hand. Any extra reading related to the course will really help to strengthen a personal statement too as it shows your interest.

    Bad idea. UCAS will flag any similarities and the universities see that. It’s really easy to get flagged so write what you think and then get a teacher/parent to help with anything else.

    Bad idea. UCAS are really good at flagging up similarities and they will notify your universities. While that isn’t quite plagiarism it isn’t a fantastic reflection of you. Write what you think is best, including key pieces of info and get help from a teacher or parent.

    I'd talk more about what is it in that subject that you like and why you'd like to study that subject in particular for 3+ years.

    If you have particular areas of interest, you may want to bring them up and say why you're interested in that specifically.

    You can also highlight your interest in specific modules, showing that you have done some research into the structure of the course.

    On the other hand, it may be helpful to get an idea of what makes a PS good
