Opportunities to improve Finance Personal Statement

I would like to make my personal statement to stand out to universities and their finance departments, i would like to work in investment banking, I currently am predicted a A*A*A at a level however i am not sure that i will be able to get an A in business, I am currently taking a gap to improve my personal statement, what can i do to make myself stand out to target universities? I have heard about doing the TMUA and i currently going to do a week of work experience in tax consulting.

i got into lse finance last year, but missed my offer- but point still stands that my PS was somewhat ok.

Introduction,
Relevant book
some random waffle about CAPM on excel and how it measures stock volatility
John Locke essay competition
Work experience which was done on macro econ research.

I am reapplying this year but if I get into LSE this time ( have another offer) I will be more than happy to send you both my PS

Would love to see the PS also if you don't mind, and welcome any insight you may have from others who got offers for more Maths/Stats/Data-y courses too
