also how do i check for plagiarism on personal statement without it being saved a document to compare against? and how badly does a ps have to be plagiarised with another existing ps? cos im using the unifrog as example but im scared everyone is doing the same and using unifrog as template.

It's 135 credits because you would only take 2 maths modules not all 4.

I'd email city to ask why it's extra credits for Yr 1 and ask whether that's linked to additional funding in any way.

The similarity detector will be triggered at 3 sentences similar (and that means the same sentence structure). If you use questions and topics to build your content then that's fine - if you're literally just substituting in words to a template then it's very likely to trigger.

If it's triggered then it will be added to a queue for someone at UCAS to look at to look at the automated report.
If they think that there's evidence of plagiarism then they'll send a report to you and each of your universities.

The check doesn't happen until after your application is submitted to UCAS.

The UCAS similarity detection doesn't just compare against online content - it compares against every other PS submitted to UCAS.

Grammerly doesn't retain any content online as far as I know but you need to check that yourself
