I am currently applying to study English Language and Literature at university next year and I am writing my personal statement. At the minute I am really stuck in general on what to write, I do have quite a few extra curricular activities (and super curricular activities) under my belt, such as work experience in a primary school, being a subject ambassador etc. I am quite stuck on what to write for the main body of my personal statement as i feel it is quite hard to find a good balance between the literature and language aspects. I feel like the obvious thing for literature would be to write about books/poems etc that have impacted me, however I am struggling on how to approach this. I am also generally quite unsure on what to write about for the language aspect. I understand that a combined English degree is a bit niche, so help from people either side and the combined would be great!
