Oh, and don't copy!
How to write a personal statement in 10 steps:
Example personal statements:
A) does the applicant DEMONSTRATE an understanding of what the course applied to involves ?
B) does the applicant DEMONSTRATE enough interest and motivation to study this course for 3+ years?
C) does the applicant DEMONSTRATE any non-academic skills required to succeed on this course (for the vast majority of courses there are no non academic requirements, health professions, teacher training are the main exceptions to this)?
Anything that doesn’t answer one of these questions can go.
Don’t be afraid of giving details - explaining how you approached a task, what problems you encountered, what you enjoyed, what you found difficult, what you found surprising etc etc - THAT is what makes a PS personal and unique to you.
