DON’T be tempted to lie on your personal statement, as you might be asked about it at interview.
DON’T copy anyone else’s personal statement or pay someone to write your personal statement for you. Almost all universities use a plagiarism detection software and this will instantly disqualify your application.
DON'T list qualifications like your "A" level grades or anything else that's covered elsewhere on the application.
DON’T just list your achievements: you need to analyse them and link it back to your application.
DON'T feel the need to be dramatic in order to be memorable. The simple and honest personal statements tend to be the best.
Apply for a course you really want to study.
Be yourself: tell the truth about your interests.
Sell yourself: this is not the time for modesty.
Reread your personal statement before an interview – the tutors will.
