The Universities and College Admission Service (UCAS) mediate all applications made to universities in the UK. You cannot apply directly to a UK university and therefore all applications must be made via UCAS using the dreaded UCAS form. This form requires you to enter your personal details, your course choices and most important of all your personal statement. Your UCAS personal statement is your opportunity to sell yourself to admissions tutors and convince them they should offer you a place at university over the 100’s of other applicants.
Use of inappropriate topics _ There are certain topics that should not be discussed in your personal statement and, therefore, should not be included in statement samples. A tatement should not mention poor grades, political leanings, and pointless gimmicks. If an example statement includes topics about political opinions or is too lengthy to the extent that it no longer makes any sense, you need to search for a better sample online. Using a sample as a guide when writing a statement is highly useful; however, not all samples are actually reliable. By learning to pinpoint the telltale signs of a bad statement example, you can find a better sample to help you write a winning admissions essay for your college, graduate school, or law school applications.
