About me

I'm a first year undergraduate in German and Russian at Cambridge. I'd love to share my experience, not only in those subjects, but in university admissions too!

Questions Claire has answered

Can I include extra-curricular activities in my personal statement?

While a personal statement naturally has to have an academic focus (if that is relevant to the subject you are applying for), universities usually like to see that you are able to balance your time effectively and thus finding things to do outside work life. A university is also interested in you as a person and what you can contribute to their student body, so whatever you like spending your free time doing is worth putting down. Keep it succint though, and make sure it does not take up the majority of your word count!

Do I need to quote directly from literature in culture essays?

Quotes sometimes help back up points and emphasise how well you know the culture topic you are discussing, however they are not listed as essential so you can definitely score highly without them.

What is the difference between a 'sein' passive and a 'werden' passive?

A passive using sein (das Brot ist geschnitten) denotes more of a state and a result, whereas a passive using werden (das Brot wird geschnitten) emphasises the process and immediacy.
