Here are some example personal statement from students taking your course which I thought was pretty good:

https://www.studential.com/personal-...al-statement-1

https://www.studential.com/personal-...al-statement-0

https://www.studential.com/personal-...al-statement-1

Read closely into each of them, and maybe you’ll get some inspiration and key ideas from these statements to craft your own personal statement. All the best!

Don't panic about your personal statement too much- writing it didn't take me too long at all, it's the working out WHAT to write that takes the time.
This worksheet might be helpful: https://www.ucas.com/sites/default/f...-worksheet.pdf

I would advise doing some supercurriculars if you have time: https://www.oxford-royale.com/articl...ar-activities/ As you don't have long and obviously have loads of studying to do, what about looking at potential degree modules of the courses you are applying for and picking a topic you are interested in, and then reading an article/book chapter on it and writing about that on your personal statement? Demonstrates your suitability and interest in your degree, and that you have gone further and read about it- proactive learning. You can find articles on Google Scholar or JSTOR, and some surprising amounts of academic book chapters on Google Books (or at libraries of course).

Its a personal statement so speak about things of personal matters. why are you interested in that course? how do your current subjects relate to it? what particular aspects make the course interesting? read relevant books and elaborate on them.

Thank you so much for the advice.Actually i’ve done some research on what topic that i would like to write and interested in but i dont know how to relate and write about my hands-on experience such as group projects and etc because i didn’t have the opportunity to do so.btw how long did it take you to write your personal statement?
Really good you know what topics to write about, that will save loads of time. I think that universities will understand if opportunities have been taken away due to the pandemic etc., just write what you aimed for and maybe emphasise the supercurriculars/extracurriculars more to demonstrate your interest. I'm sure it will be absolutely fine, your grades are excellent.

I wrote mine in an afternoon- but had fully planned exactly what I wanted to include and had ideas on how to link things etc. Writing is my strong point however.
I would plan as much as you can so the writing is easier. Good luck, you'll be fine!

If you can't do group projects, read books, watch online lectures/courses, listen to podcasts
