Don't try and think about what they (the Uni) would want you to say. Just try and make it a true reflection of why the hell you chose this course.
Oh, and don't copy!

Hello, im currently having a hard time, thinking about what to put in my personal statement. Any advice?
Admissions staff reading a PS are looking to answer 3 questions:
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.
