How do I make an eye-catching personal statement?

Universities are looking for passionate students first and foremost. You should make sure your love of the subject shines through. The easiest way to do this is to talk about reading or work experience you've done around your A-Levels and what skills you think this will have given you for the course ahead. 

In addition to this, be straightforward. Flowery language is sometimes beneficial but may just get in the way of the point you have to make, and you only have limited space. So, we can work on the personal statement together and see if we can refine any sentences.

Lastly, spell-check! Any bad grammar or spelling will mark you down in the admissions officer's estimation. Thankfully, this is a very easy part to do correctly, and can be done right the first time, just ask me, family members and other teachers to read over it!

The easiest way to start is to come up with a draft, think of why you want to study the subject you're applying to, then come back and edit the other aspects. Go for it yourself first, you'll probably surprise yourself with what you write.
