It depends on if you're applying in October or January, but for the 2020 entry I think I started my personal statement in August and it was fully finished at the end of September for the October application, I don't think I would've fully finished it before September as I my college to check over it. I'm reapplying again this year for the 2021 entry and my personal statement is mostly done, but I might still keep adapting it till October.

Me! But I'm not applying to Oxbridge so I guess I have finished it a bit early. I might send it in to TSR (private forum) to look over it for me soon.

How?! I spent so long on it because I couldn't keep within the 4000 characters and 47 lines. :puppyeyes:

I've written mine up but I need to alter some things, shouldn't take long as I've got the bulk of it done. Only spent a few hours writing it, thought it would take longer but then again I'm not a very interesting person...:confused:

I don’t know tbh. I just found it really easy to do and finished fairly quickly. I managed to keep in the work count too, so i didn’t have to worry about having to make it short. What are you planning to apply for?
