How to write a personal statement that catapults you on to your chosen course Selling yourself in under 4,000 characters to an academic you've never met is pretty daunting even for the most confident sixth-form student. So we've put together some dos and don'ts to make sure you show yourself in the best possible light. Here are eight don'ts • Don't spend ages trying to come up with a perfect, snappy first line – write anything and return to it later. • Don't use cliches. • Famous quotes should be avoided, as these will be found in countless other applications. • Don't list your interests, demonstrate them. • Style matters. • Don't ask too many people for advice. Nicole Frith, 19, who has just started a BSc in Geography at the University of Durham, asked two teachers for advice on content. • Don't be tempted to let someone else write your personal statement for you. • Dont' skimp on paragraphs, despite their negative impact on line count. And eight dos • Organisation is the key. • Leave yourself plenty of time for editing. • Be specific.

10 things not to put in your personal statement University admissions tutors read hundreds of personal statements from students each year – so what is it that they really don’t want to see in there?

Personal statement don'ts from universities We headed to uni campuses to ask tutors themselves what their top personal statement pitfalls are (as well as what they DO want to see)... 1.

'So many people use the same quotes and the worst scenario is when it comes right at the start of the statement with no explanation.' 2. 3. 4. 5. 'Show it, don’t say it.' 6. 7. 8. 9.

10 things to put in your personal statement No two personal statements should be the same (the clue is in the personal!), but there are certain additions that will get the attention of the admissions tutor reading it whatever subject you want to study. Remember: what you write could end up being the decider between you and another candidate. Personal statements - tips from universities We asked admissions tutors for their personal statement dos and don'ts - here's what they said... 1.
