Hello,

I can't find anyone to check my first draft of my personal statement through and as I'm an early applicant I'd like to start early. None of my teachers are replying to me (left me on read) presumably because it's the summer holidays, and as it's only my first draft I don't want to pay for full on reviews on e.g. medify.

Does anyone have any suggestions of where to go? Or is anyone willing to read my PS and give feedback?

Thanks

Hey, I'm an early applicant as well and I have no idea on how to even start a PS. How did you approach it?

You can post it in this private forum for feedback: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/for...lay.php?f=1372

They will only look at one draft, though.

Do not send your PS to anyone on here. The link EierVonSatan has provided is the best thing to do.

I listed down anything and everything I wanted/needed to include e.g.extra-curricular, super-curricular, why I want to study that particular subject at uni.

You might not know whether they are in year 12 or not. They could copy parts or your whole personal statement.

UCAS tests the submitted personal statements on plagiarism. If you posted your statement here then you would probably be disqualified as they would think you copied it from the internet.

My school already made us sign up to UCAS and complete the education/ basic info/ we have done personal drafts for a personal statement which was due in June but then we have till September to redraft it before we submit it. But I heard there isn’t a deadline for us until November. I could read it because my teachers sent us examples of how to do it and what u shouldn’t do in it.
