The UCAS Application personal statement
Completing UCAS applications can be a long and painstaking process, not helped by the fact that the vast majority of people who are applying through UCAS in any given year will be in their final year at school, and also dealing with the pressure of trying to gain the grades they will need to get onto the course of their choice. Is it any wonder then that that so many people end up rushing their UCAS personal statement, perhaps the most important part of the entire UCAS applications process? In the scrabble to get everything done the temptation to simply jot down a few paragraphs, with little thought or structure, can prove overwhelming.
With UCAS reporting that, in 2011, they received 600,000 UCAS applications for around 400,000 university places you can see that relying simply on good grades and a strong performance at school is no longer enough. In order to stand out from the competition, UCAS applications must be perfect and must, above all else, reflect what it is that makes you a unique candidate. This is why the quality of the UCAS personal statement has become increasingly important as the competition for places has increased. A good UCAS personal statement can be the only difference between two students with identical grades. In other words, it could make the difference between applying and actually getting in.
You can now find a truly personal UCAS personal statement service that works with you to produce a well-written, bespoke statement, improving UCAS application and exhibiting why you are the strong, and unique, candidate that you are. Many of the UK’s top schools are already offering their students this level of expert guidance when completing their UCAS applications as a matter of course. Other schools, however, simply cannot offer the time or resources to ensure that each student gets a similar level of attention throughout the application process. UCAS personal statement services are an opportunity to level the playing field during the UCAS applications process, to make sure that each applicant can get expert, personalised advice on shaping the best UCAS personal statement possible.
This level of personal service, that could prove so invaluable during the UCAS applications process, is based on the principle that your UCAS personal statement should remain, as the name suggests, personal. While it is possible to find a wealth of advice on how to compose the ‘perfect personal statement’, following this advice to the letter can make for an impersonal statement, and can even risk running foul of the stringent UCAS plagiarism rules. At Getting In, a top writer work alongside you throughout the application process, to make sure that we are simply making your potential as a student clear to your chosen institutions.
By selecting the top graduates from the UK’s leading universities, the personal statement services that can guide you through the applications process are also based around matching up UCAS applications with a writer who has the experience and skill to create an excellent personal statement. With graduates from undergraduate and postgraduate courses at Oxford, Cambridge, UCL and Edinburgh, our writers have proven their ability to gain entry to the top institutions and courses by getting themselves there.
At Getting In you will find a range of services that allows you to make the most of this skill and experience to create excellent applications. We offer everything, from a personal statement editing service, which can be used to hone an existing statement, to a specific service based around the production of a bespoke UCAS personal statement for the most competitive institutions and courses, such as Oxbridge, Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. In order to make sure that all UCAS applications remains personal the writers need to make sure that they know all the relevant information about you before working on your statement. Once you have completed a quick and easy series of questions they should have all they need to decide what to highlight to make your UCAS personal statement impressive and full of impact.
Not all university applications are UCAS applications, of course. We also have writers who are experienced in producing personal statements for international and postgraduate applications. These can often differ greatly from a standard UCAS applications and it is, once again, only the kind of personal service that you can find Getting In that can ensure these difference are accounted for when working with you to produce a statement. Applying advice or received wisdom about completing UCAS applications to the process of completing a postgraduate or international personal statement means that you may be running the risk of not focusing on the specific information that they require. With the expert advice available you can make sure that you don’t fall into this trap.
