I do not have anything from school about writing a personal statement, can someone tell me what I should include in a personal statement and how it should be written? Also any good websites and pdf documents that tells you what should and should not be in a good personal statement? Just the stuff like sheets and checklists school gives to you when you start writing your p s to sort of help you.

For my personal statement to study psychology, I included the relevant books I'd read and what these taught me, why I wanted to study the subject (don't say things like 'it's something I've been passionate about since I was young' - it's cliche), the skills my other A-Level subjects had taught me and how I could transfer these to the subject I want to study, include any work experience/volunteering you've done, hobbies (this shows what you'll add to the university, sports for example), and also what you aspire to do after graduating/what you want to do with your degree (if you know, of course. best not to make something up if you're unsure of what you want to do). try and make it all as relevant as you can to the subject you want to study.
