I broadly tailored my personal statement but not at all detailed.

I got in to BASc in 2019 and my PS was tailored to Law - BASc was my 5th choice. I got in anyways they do say they do not really look for the PS to be written FOR them, they understand it’s a very unique course

I've been given five days as well as I am not too sure how the questions should be answered, like what are they looking for. How did you find it?

Hi, I just received my questionnaire and I am confused as to what they are looking for e.g. the style of writing I should use. i wish they provided an example and there are none online. I was wondering if you had any tips?

Hi! I actually did not have to do a questionnaire when I was applying, we were all asked to come in and listen to four lectures (one from each strand), and then we had two hours to answer questions (broadly related to the lectures) on a computer. So I'm not sure how helpful I can be. All I can say is that I didn't really focus that much on the style of writing, just enough to make it structured and coherent, and I prioritised making as many points as I could. I had a computer issue where half of my sentences at the end of each Q actually got chopped off and I still made it in. Writing is something you definitely learn at university, which is why I think it's more of a test on original thought, valuing interdisciplinary, and in my case ability to learn from the lectures we were given.

Has anyone got the Arts Test for the UCL BASc on 10th December? If so can they please let me know how they’re preparing for the exam? I’ve been reading on the topics mentioned in the A Level general studies and would also like to start practicing essays relatively soon - so if anyone has any advice I’d love to hear it

Hello, I’m also an applicant to arts and sciences My personal statement was for the course ‘human sciences’ which is basically like a combo of bio and social sciences - so I did feel that my personal statement was well tailored for arts & sciences because it was interdisciplinary. But all in all it doesn’t really matter whether your personal statement is tailored that much or not because UCL BASc mentioned on the website that they weigh your questionnaire and A Levels more than the personal statement.

I already submitted my questionnaire a while ago but it was about 6-7 questions of why you want to do the course, why are you the right person for the course, why are you interested in interdisciplinary studies etc. It’s kind of like an additional personal statement specially for the course. I would say it’d be good to mention a few books/documentaries/podcasts of some of the disciplines you’re interested in and even worth mentioning how ideas youve learnt from different disciplines connect with each other.

UCL also look at your A Levels (obviously) and whether you have A levels with a mix of humanities and sciences or whether you’re only humanities or sciences based. So if you only have humanities/arts A Levels then you’d have to do a sciences exam and if you have only sciences/maths A Levels then you’d have to do a humanities exam. They said they do the exams several times a year depending on when you apply. Hope this is helpful! And good luck to everyone applying.
