    Just finished my GCSE's but I'm not sure, does everyone do their personal statements at Sixth form or is it meant to be done some other time.

    Thanks!

    Well most people at my Sixth Form are doing a first draft now. Between their first and second years.

    personal statements for uni, I'm assuming?

    If so, don't even think about it yet. It's unlikely you know now what you want to do, and a lot of what you put in it will come from the coming year.

    At our school, we start to write them when we go back in year 13, and even then a lot of people have problems because they either still don't know what they want to do, or how to structure it.

    You might as well start a draft in the summer between year 12 and 13. If you have to rush it, it may be rubbish and that's not too brilliant if you want to get into a top uni.

    yeah, this time next year. i've already done one draft of mine, but that's only because we had to hand in one draft before we broke up so our tutors could advise us on stuff we needed to do this summer to improve it. e.g vol. work, ready related books etc.

    I'd say end of Year 12 and start of Year 13 as someone put it nicely above. I'm almost finished with my first draft. It took a while to get into it - I started quite late considering I read a lot of medical applicants had their first drafts written at the start of the summer holidays way before results.

    Good God! Calm Down.. get through year 12 first! I began mine in the start of year 13.. while mulling it over during the summer before that.
    Your style of writing and interests will change from now to say a years time.. so wait.

    I don't think there is a point writing the actual thing at your stage. Your mind will change dozens of times about what you want in the future before you submit your ucas. Maybe concentrate on joing clubs and societies, helping out in school, volunteering and most importantly getting a head start on this years course!

    Don't forget the importance of your grades!
