When checking my personal statement, I put it through a few online grammar checkers. I am now a bit worried that when UCAS checks for plagiarism it will come up as plagiarised because I have technically put it onto the internet. Will this be an issue?

hey, as far as i'm aware the software they use only compares between already existing personal statements they have, a grammar checker shouldn't store what you wrote on the internet, you should be fine, and seeing as you wrote it, its shouldn't be very hard to explain what happened if something comes up. don't worry !

I used Grammarly and then a couple more I found on google such as these:

https://www.scribens.com/

Ok, I'd say the chances of it being flagged for plagiarism are very close to zero if you only used those checkers, so don't worry.
