Introduce yourself and what you're applying for
What other universities you're thinking of
A levels/BTECs/IB/ Highers predicted grades

Might as well start.
I'm Eve, I'm thinking of applying for the Fine Art BA at UCL (Slade). UCL offer both a 4-year Fine Art BA and a 3-year Fine Art BFA, but I'm leaning towards the BA because of the history of art component.

I'm also hoping to apply to Oxford, two University of the Arts London colleges (CSM and Chelsea), and Kingston.

I'm taking 4 A-Levels in English Literature, Chemistry, Economics and Art and Design. I achieved AAAA at AS, but will hopefully be predicted A*A*A*A* or A*A*A*A.
I have another A-Level that I've already completed this year, which was History of Art (A*).

At GCSE, I got 11A*'s. We haven't moved over to the 9-1 system yet, so I don't know what that would be in 8s or 9s.

Whilst I have a few extracurriculars (e.g. volunteering with my local football club), I think most of my personal statement will probably be supercurriculars - I've taken three short courses at UAL and a life drawing class locally, alongside doing a decent amount of further reading around History of Art.

That's really cool. Heyyy, I'm applying for Law at UCL.

Ooh, nice to see someone who also does Economics! Would UCL be your first choice or would it be one of the other universities?
