I'm currently doing my presentations for Maths and Physics. They're going to be used for my personal statement for UCAS. What tips would you give for me? I would like to give a good impression.

Basically, our effort and enthusiasm in the project will be used in the reference. eg: X has demonstrated interest in Y because of her presentation etc. etc.

Oh that's interesting.

Umm, general presentation tips. Smile, be confident, research the topic well, use flashcards but don't write a full script on them and don't keep looking at them. Mainly use just pictures on your PowerPoint rather than have loads of words.

You know you get to choose everything that goes in your personal statement right?

Sorry - must've made a mistake. I didn't mean my own personal statement I write for myself, but rather the UCAS reference my teachers write for me.

Why is this needed; don't your teacher know this already? It sounds a complete waste of time.

This seems like a lie to scare you into trying. It is in your teachers benefit to only put good things on the reference, so if you don't do well in the presentation, they won't put it on there.

It's not a scare - a friend in Year 13 confirmed this. Also, they aren't going to put anything bad on my ref, I know that. But doing well on it will still give them something to say.

Again, it's just used as a reinforcement to the stuff they're writing anyway.

Why? You've been in lessons with them for two terms and continued to attend online lessons/complete set work. I've never heard of a school needing this ...

I thought the reference is what your teachers have seen from you since you started or something like that.../
