That's one thing, right now I feel I have things going for me being part of six committees at uni including United Nations etc... my mate does sod all but says he'll just put all that stuff down cos they're not going to check. Lying about grades etc isn't wise because they can check up, but he's right that they won't be able to track down whether you were Treasurer or Social Secretary for some society. Grr.

Teachers' references could arouse suspicion about a candidate's PS of course...

Yeah I was specifically referring to CV post-uni rather than UCAS forms, where it's a lot more difficult to falsify information. Though teachers may not know your outside-school pursuits.

True say. Still, I believe in Karma, so I have faith in that liars will be punished and truth-tellers will be rewarded. But I live a sort of double life, at home an entire lie, while at sixth form and socially I am as honest as they come. :confused: Gnng!

For students applying to Universities where they're not required to take part in interviews, I don't suppose it hurts to jazz up their statements a little - I know I would've done!

Hi why is this statement deleted i really need to see it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
here it is.


I would like to apply to do a Management degree. Having acted as Managing Director on a Young Enterprise Team whilst doing my ‘AS’ levels, I came up with innovative ideas that made a very successful company. Having held management positions within Human Resources, Operations, and Finance, I quickly realised that pursuing a management degree at university would be ideal for me.

After my GCSE’s, I held a temporary job as a junior in an Insolvency practice, in order to gain work experience. Having to work to tight deadlines taught me how to work independently as part of a professional team. I learnt that in business, if one person lacks productivity, then everyone else can suffer, and also how to motivate others as a means of preventing such issues. I used the skills learnt to enhance my role as the Managing Director of my young Enterprise company, particularly methods of motivation and delegation, and the significance of being accountable for others. Having spent nearly three years working part time in a Health food shop alongside my studies, I developed my communication skills, with both colleagues and customers, and proved to be a trustworthy employee.

Being appointed as Deputy Head Boy in the sixth form was a great honour to me. My skills were greatly enhanced by holding this position, as I would often have to listen, and respond to issues brought up by fellow prefects, and students lower down the school. Through activities such as Lunch duty, I learnt the worth of different leadership skills, and that it is important to treat everyone as an individual in order to get results. I was always keen to stay into the evening to help out at school events.

Socialising is very important to me, and I am always keen to meet new people. I enjoy trying new foods to increase my knowledge of different cultures, and my culinary skills will prove very useful in independent university life. I enjoy travelling, and learning about modern history. Having recently returned from Prague, I visited a concentration camp. This was a moving experience for me, and something I will never forget. Music is one of my biggest hobbies, and I use music to help me unwind and reflect on things. I use the internet to keep up with current affairs and sports news.

I have always been a keen sportsman, representing my school in many sporting activities. I enjoy running, particularly competing in sprint races, but also long distance running as a means of keeping fit. I always try to go for a run every evening, during breaks between my A Level studies. I represented my school as a keen member of the district and Maccabi Great Britain athletics teams, particularly in the relay. I formally played tennis and table tennis in national competitions, and more recently I have played in football, rugby, and cricket leagues outside of school.

I believe that my experiences have prepared me for independent university life. My social skills together with my ambition to succeed in life prove me to be good candidate for a Management Degree.

Good to be a bit individual though, otherwise nothing really stands apart! (no offence intended, just you wouldn't want 00s of people sending in variations of 1 method would you? it would be so tedious to read for a start!)
