How to write a good personal statement in one day?Watch this thread
A personal statement should include:
- why you want to study the degree you’re applying for
- what skills you have developed
- what have you learnt when partaking in an extra curricular
A personal statement should show your passion for the subject.
Generally, a personal statement is 80% academic and 20% extra curricular.
Hope this helps!
Make a note of what you want to write about and then just write - you can refine it once you have a general idea.
Probably best to save writing the intro til last, unless you have an idea for it
Why I want to study that subject and what I'm interested in within it
My 3 current subjects and how they all relate to my chosen course
My EPQ and an online course I completed and how this confirmed my interest in my chosen course
Extra curricular things (still relating it to uni)
Then I ended it saying that I'm excited to study that subject further etc.
