Does anyone know when UCAS will publish the set of questions for personal statement? Or have they already.

Thanks :smile:

The personal statement isn’t changing for 2025 entry. The changes will be introduced in 2025 for 2026 entry. The 4000 character personal statement will remain unchanged if you plan to apply to university this September.

That report you provided is misleading as in one place it says it will be for 2025 entrants….

Personal statements are set to become a thing of the past. The University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) has introduced a new process for university applications from 2025, meaning that the process will change in 2024 ready for 2025 entrants.

Looks like it was meant to be for 2025 but has since been delayed.

Yes this was exactly the case, as the initial discussion of the personal statement changes was occurring in early 2023 and were delayed by UCAS in January 2024. If you read further down the opening paragraph it says:

If you are preparing to apply for university right now, then you don’t need to worry too much. This new structure isn’t coming into play until 2025, when students are applying for 2026 entry.
