Think about what you're going to say before trying to dive in and write it. Make a list of the main points and then try writing a paragraph for each of them. Leave writing the beginning/end for when you've finished the rest

Ask your peer mentor, teachers, parents, friends for help
Watch youtube videos on it
Google it

It's basically like a CV kind of.

Look at these examples on TSR - which subject are you doing btw? You want to make sure you write about your preferred/favourite subject that you want to study at uni in here.

You need to try and encompass the reasons why you want to study that course, what experience you have related to your interest in studying this course, and why the uni should accept you and how will you contribute to the uni i.e. what type of person are you.

It's best to start off with a list of all of your relevant experience, maybe even some personal notes, and extra curricular activities you have. Writing a personal statement is a long process, so honestly don't stress too much about the first draft, just get something down then find someone to help you finalise it and smooth it up.
