Make It Interesting Perhaps the most important goal of all though is to keep your essay interesting. Your personal statement needs to be one that keeps the readers interest throughout. Remember, medical schools admissions committees are reading hundreds of these essays. You want yours to stand out in a good way. Writing a generic medical school personal statement or essay may not get your rejected, but it certainly will not get you into medical school. Congratulations! You are now at the forefront of another academic milestone as you plan to rise to the next level and pursue advanced studies. Whether you intend to pursue graduate studies in a local school or abroad, you will have to undergo a rigid admission process, which will require you to submit various application documents, foremost of which is the Personal Statement.
Structuring your UCAS Personal Statement Although there is no officially recognised structure that a UCAS personal statement must conform to, it must flow in a logical manner and contain the information summarised in the introduction. A standard order for your UCAS personal statement could be: _ Introductory sentence introducing why you would like to study your chosen subject and why you would be suitable to study at university _ Give specific examples of your academic experiences and explain how these have influenced your choice of subject _ What your future goals are _ Explain what responsibilities you have had in and out of school _ Detail of work experience you have and how it has help developed you as a person _ Include a concluding sentence summarising your application
