Tackle your UCAS Personal Statement in stages
Getting started can be tough, but if you approach the task as a series of steps, you will find it easier. Work off-line so that you don’t feel under time pressure and can cut and paste as much as you want.
Why not try the following step-by-step procedure.
1. List everything that might be relevant.
2. Decide what is best to include.
3. Decide on the order to put your points in.
4. Sort out where the supporting detail should come, and what it should be.
5. Write a draft and show it to your adviser. Be prepared for a couple more drafts!

• reasons for choosing the course
• worthwhile personal achievements and experience
• description of your spare-time interests.
Don’t worry about order, length, expression: those will come later.
You need to explain why you have chosen the course you are applying for. Even if it follows directly from one of your A levels you should explain why you want to spend three more years on that subject. If it’s an area you haven’t studied before you definitely need to show you know what’s involved. The university course details and the course entry profiles you’ll find on the UCAS website will give you an idea of the qualities admissions tutors are looking for.
Here are some ideas:
1. Reasons related to your A levels. Are there aspects of the A-level subjects you are taking (content or/and approach to learning) which you particularly like and which are relevant to the degree you want to study? If so, write about them in your Statement. NB It is not enough to say ‘I like Economics, therefore I’m applying for an Economics degree’. You need to say why you like Economics.
2. Career plans: Need mentioning, even if you are still undecided. If you have a career in mind you should describe why you are attracted Read more…
