Do you have a broad structure? When I was writing mine I had this structure:
intro (briefly outlining why I wanted to do the degree)
paragraph 1 (life experience that I reflected on and made me realise a quality for making me good for the degree)
paragraph 2 (reflecting on a book that I read/tv documentary thats related and some sort of insight/analysis)
paragraph 4 ( maybe another life experience/book/documentary- if not go straight to conclusion)
Conclusion (list hobbies/ volunteering if relevant/achievements if relevant (prefect, head boy/girl) and then write a final statement about why you are suited for the degree and want to study it)
hope this helps :smile:
