Your Learning for Life teacher will also give you a comprehensive introduction to writing a personal statement, and give you access to some exemplars, that have been written by students in previous years.

Remember! UCAS uses a piece of similarity detection software called copy catch, which looks for similar statements that have been used before, so you can't find something that you found online!

You will start writing your personal statements in Learning for Life lessons from March onwards. It will take a number of drafts, and then we will aim to have a statement, which could be set to UCAS, completed by the end of Applications Week in July. You are of course welcome to update it over the summer.
