How to edit a UCAS personal statement (video)


How to edit your personal statement

Ugh! What a nightmare… You've spent hours writing your personal statement, brainstorming everything you've done that makes you the perfect candidate for your course, crafting an opening sentence and tweaking your words. However, you're way over the 4,000 character limit that UCAS puts on personal statements and you have no idea what to cut out! Don't worry, in this blog and video I'm sharing my favourite technique on how to edit a UCAS personal statement.

One of my clients, Dionne, wrote to me and said:

I've been constantly trying to improve and critique my personal statement. However, I've found that I'm at the character limit with topics left to discuss. What shall I do?”
This video is for Dionne  and everyone like her, who has exceeded the character limit and still has stuff to say! Arghhh….
