How should I start on my Personal Statement?

Like with every piece of writing, the key to success is a good plan. Have a think about why you are the best candidate, and why the admissions officer should give you a place at the university of your choice. Show your passion for the course you are applying for, by giving real life examples of the reasons why you would like to study the area. Ensure your sentences are sharp and to the point; you do not want to 'bore' the admissions officer!
