Uni personal statement

Hi Anushka. If you're really not sure, I'd recommend taking a gap year. This can be a good way to give yourself time for more research and thinking, and you could also take the opportunity to gain some professional experience, and even save some money towards your studies. You don't want to end up regretting your choice or feeling that you haven't done as well academically as you could have. You could also consider taking some MOOCs (free online courses) to get a "taster" of different courses before you make a decision. And we have a blog post about how to find a course of study you love , which might offer some more ideas. Good luck!

Students sometimes feel that they need to say something dramatic to stand out from the crowd and be really memorable in their personal statement but this is not true. Applying to Oxford is not like a talent show where you may only have a few seconds to make an impression. Tutors consider each application carefully on its individual merits, looking for evidence of your commitment and ability. If you use your personal statement to demonstrate your academic abilities and your engagement with your subject or subjects, then your application will be memorable for all the right reasons.

Be wary of ending up with a personal statement that's too similar to your friends' though. Universities have seen a lot of it before and can usually tell when a UCAS personal statement is not original. Writing for multiple courses in one statement Credit: Gabriel Rojas Hruska – Flickr
I do a joint degree, but fortunately it's in English and Creative Writing, so when writing my personal statement it was easy to mix the two together. However, writing for a joint degree in two completely unrelated subjects can be difficult.
