Writing a Personal Statement?

I am in the middle of helping tutees prepare personal statements for their UCAS entry.  These links to You Tube films may be of interest:

why statements are often rejected

Birmingham University

Imperial College – with a summary from 33 minutes

And on Plagiarism 

There is no magic bullet – every student and every university is different and there is a danger in writing an utterly formulaic response.  I hope you may use these along with whatever material your schools are issuing to help you.

Good Luck!
