East Dulwich, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 03, 2012 -- In recent years with the introduction of tuition fees university positions are becoming increasingly hard to secure. With more A Level students than ever before applying for university the UCAS personal statement is now more important than ever. The UCAS personal statement is the one opportunity that you have prior to the interview where you can put across your personality and drive. You must explain why you want to study the course you are applying for. If you mention your personal interests and hobbies, try to link them to the skills and experience required for the course. The UCAS personal statement could be used as the basis for an interview, so be prepared to answer questions on it. This may be your only written work that the course tutor sees before making a decision: make sure it is organised and literate.
Get the grammar, spelling and punctuation right. This is where the experts at Adducology come into their own, with a number of proof reader and experts on the UCAS application process they are able to give you some excellent advice. A statement filled with errors will give a negative impression of your skills and the effort you have put in to being accepted. To put your mind at rest speak to one of the Adducology consultants about the UCAS personal statement review or the Oxbridge UCAS personal statement review services.
There are a number of areas in these concise statements that you must ensure that you get right in order to give you the very best chance of gaining your desired university place. How to describe your interests and hobbies, achievements and awards in a way that makes them relevant to your chosen course are fundamental. Further complications start if you are wishing to apply for a joint course or if you are applying from overseas. Your course choice may be a natural progression from what you have previously studied or it may be something completely different. How you link this all together in your UCAS Personal Statement is what Adducology specialise in.
