    I've only started to do the third draft, the best tip is to check it in with your tutor every draft you make, they tell you things that may need to be added or taken out, you do that, bring it back, keep doing this until you've got something to be proud of

    When I spoke to the Universities that have rejected me (so far) I was told it was down to the reference only estimating "c or above" in grades as opposed to a bad personal satement or something.
