So as the idiot I am, i posted my Personal Statement online, it was up for about a day and I got it deleted.

I'm not taking any chances so I rewrote and rephrased my whole personal statement but however there is a lot of similarities that I simply cannot change like my work experience and my hobbies etc.

What do you think my chances are of being accused of plagiarism upon my own PS?

I did that with my original PS and it said no plagiarism, even though I had it deleted I still don't trust it. I reckon UCAS have advanced mechanisms of detecting plagiarism.

Contact UCAS and inform them, see if they can check it for you.

Wouldn't that do more harm than good? It'd put a big question mark next to my name when I send it and it'd be under high scrutiny?

Can always call without providing name nor UCAS ID and explain why, and ask if they could check it for you and if it would have any consquences.
