    I did my ukcat on August 20th and then started my personal statement, however I had already planned parts of it out. Don’t worry most unis don’t take the personal statement into consideration when making offers

    Medicine has the early deadline, so you'll probably need a finished PS by the end of September. However, if you have work experience lined up over the summer, then I think you have a strong argument to make with your school for not starting it in June.

    Do it between after Y12 finishes and Y13 begins. Then do some extra drafts during Y13

    For my school, the UCAS stuff in June was literally filling in everything but the personal statement(to get it out the way). So that's just personal information and qualifications.
    I started my PS for medicine properly in september, however began drafting what I wanted to include over summer(based on some work experience).

    Start it after your exams are over in the summer. I didn’t even write mine until 3 weeks before the UCAS deadline
