UCAS Personal Statement Checker

The UCAS personal statement is the most important part of your university application. This is where you’ll make an impression on the admissions tutors and show them what you’re all about. It’s not as hard as it sounds, but there are some things to bear in mind when writing your personal statement so it stands out from all the other applicants. In this article, we’ll go through how to write your own UCAS personal statement and teach you how to use the personal statement checker for free.

Once you finish writing your personal statement, it is equally important to have it reviewed by someone professional. This is why most of the applicants go for UCAS personal statement checker prior to submitting it. While a simple checker tool will help you check the word count, tone or voice, a personal human checker would help you understand the structure of your personal statement and discover gaps which you can fill in to make it perfect.

Your personal statement can be up to 4,000 characters long, which is about 550–1000 words with spaces on 8.5 x 11 A4 paper. You can simply open Google Docs and paste your personal statement there. Then go to Tools -> Word Count. Make sure you are within the limits.

Best Personal Statement Examples

The best place to find personal statement examples is on the websites of universities or colleges. You’ll be able to see what other students have written about themselves and learn from their successes and mistakes.

You can also find great personal statement examples online at sites like University Compare or the UCAS Official Website. If you want your own university application essay to stand out, it’s worth checking out these sites for inspiration and instructions!

However, it is important to remember that those best examples are written by those who already received an offer. Hence, it might make sense for you to find a current student of a top university and ask them for guidance. You can find plenty of such mentors at Edumentors.co.uk. You can even sign up for a dedicated personal statement help here.

How To Write a Winning UCAS Personal Statement

There are many things you need to consider to write a winning personal statement. Especially if you’re aiming for the UK’s Top universities. Here’s a short video explaining the top points to consider when writing the UCAS personal statement

The opening sentence of your personal statement is crucial, as it sets the tone for the rest of your application. It should be short but powerful and draw the reader in. You can only make the first impression once so use this opportunity to stand out!

Think about what you want an admissions officer to know about you after reading this first sentence. Then write down one sentence that says exactly what that is in clear and concise terms. Show your ambitions, your desires, or your story. It needs to grab the reader’s attention and make them think that they’re reading a unique essay.

Here’s a complete guide to writing a winning personal statement and 10 important things to know.
