    How do I start a personal statement
    Hello James,

    If you are struggling to start your personal statement I would reccomend taking a look at the UCAS personal statement worksheet and guide. The guide breaks down the key areas that they reccomend to be included in the 4000 characters.

    I would suggest to not start your personal statment with a quote however, as this will just use up valuable words. Consider writing a concise, punchy statement that will gain the attention of the admissions team who are reading it.

    I hope this helps and best of luck,

    Tom :cool:
