Im in year 12 so I just want to get clarity over this so I don't have worry about rushing things in the future. So I'm guessing in year 13 you have to do a UCAS personal statement directed to colleges and unis. But how would I write one if the college I look to going to is a US college for sports (in my situation: basketball)? Would mine be different? Id like to have any advice from anyone, especially people who've already went through the process im talking about.

US unis will have very different expectations for their application process than UK unis.

This site is primarily aimed at UK students (or at least the UK application process) - there is a forum on studying in north America here, but I don't know how many people will know about the process: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=227

Otherwise you'll have to look elsewhere probably (maybe the websites for the unis you are considering)

If you want to apply to UK unis, you do so through UCAS with a single personal statement that goes to all 5 choices you put down. Whatever you do for the US uni will be completely separate from this, and will depend on the uni you're interested in.

Each uni/college has their own set of questions and essays you have to write which really tests your creative writing as well. Sometimes they change up the questions sometimes they don't.
