    Just wondering how far people have come in doing their personal statements? I have written a fair bit for a first draft and have a plan in place for what else to write but I am finding it difficult to stick within the limits! I feel like I have to write about a lot but I'm a bit unsure as to how much detail is required .

    So how much have you guys done? and for those who are past this stage in life, how much had you done 2 weeks into the summer holidays?

    Nothing. Ideas about what to write to make me sound good, but not so sure on a structure.
