Why Is Your UCAS Personal Statement Crucial For University Application Success?

Good grades no longer speak for themselves as far as admissions officers are concerned when trying to distinguish between the huge quantity of applications they receive every year, whether through UCAS (for undergraduate courses), the GTTR or PGCE (for teacher training) or direct applications (for postgraduate courses). Students need to show that extra special something to set themselves apart. This is where our team of admissions specialists and professional writers come into their own. For undergraduate applications, even if a student has been prepped all through school and received extensive help from personal tutors outside of school hours, then his or her top grades alone are not going to be enough to prove that he or she is ready for the sort of independent study that will be expected for the study demands that will await them after the UCAS applications process. When sifting through all those who apply through UCAS, admissions staff members want to see how students came by those great grades. A great grade from an autodidact may be more impressive than the same grade from a mollycoddled public school boy, if both have used the same UCAS system to apply. And it’s a similar story with applications to postgraduate courses. A 2.1 degree in itself is not always sufficient to guarantee a place on a PGCE, a Masters and especially a PhD. Even more so than at undergraduate level, admissions tutors for these types of courses will put their faith in the quality of a personal statement when selecting applicants, and students with excellent grades but an average personal statement are less likely to fare well than those whose statement marks them out as having exceptional potential.

With universities looking to widen access, UCAS and postgraduate admissions officers alike will look favourably on students who have overcome hurdles to achieve top grades. In the past, a disadvantaged pupil may have lost out to the public school boy because he or she may never have had the opportunity to gain the experience and develop the qualities which are usually seen as necessary for a successful UCAS application. But now these pupils have as good a chance of gaining coveted places at universities as pupils at those from the UK’s top private schools. This is owing to UCAS levelling the field by using the personal statement as an important part of the application. There has been a similar levelling of the playing field for postgraduate courses as well. Nowadays the institution at which the applicant is not afforded anything like as much significance as the quality of their application statement is.

The UCAS and postgraduate application systems are more competitive than ever. The demand for places at good, reputable universities is high and with prices and fees for university increasing, students are more careful and more aware of where to apply. The number of both undergraduate UCAS applications and applicants for postgraduate studies is at an all-time high and the cost of going to university is huge.  University is an immensely costly investment and students are very careful about their futures as they see the level of commitment that university requires in terms of time and money. They realize the importance of choosing the most suitable course to them individually as well as the course that will give them the best opportunity in the job market. A clear and professional personal statement gives students the best possible chance to gain entry to their desired course and university. This is equally true for postgraduate and teacher-training applications as it is for students applying through UCAS to go to university for the first time. Personal statement writing services make the process of going through UCAS or applying directly to a university even more meritocratic, as they give less fortunate students the chance to ensure their personal statements impress admissions officers as much as those of privileged public school children (or graduates from elite universities in the case of postgraduate admissions), if not even more so.

Why Using The Experts Will Help You With Your Personal Statement

We offer personal statements which are

– Perfect and precise

– Unique and original, written just for you

– Grammatically perfect and free from spelling errors

– The work of expert writers

– Fully compliant with all UCAS requirements for undergraduate admissions

– Postgraduate and other types of statements prepared in accordance with the course or institutions own specifications

We have a select team of specialist writers waiting to write the personal statement that will set you apart from all the other applicants. Every single one of our writers has graduated from university with at least a 2:1 grade, so they have produced their own personal statements at one time or another and now want to produce a custom personal statement for you. Many of our team have also completed postgraduate studies, and consequently have the expertise necessary for helping you to craft a perfect postgraduate statement. There are many advantages of using our specialised service and letting us give you some personal statement help, not least because of the difficulty many of us find in singing our own praises. We will ensure your statement is grammatically perfect and free from spelling errors. While the spell checking system on your computer is a good place to start, nothing can replace the human eye. If you say “Their are many reasons why I am suited to this course…” instead of “There are many reasons…”, your spell check will not pick this up. Our eagle-eyed writers and proof-readers will, though. It may be that English is not your first language and therefore the thought of writing a personal statement that could determine the success of your application for your chosen course fills you with dread. Using our service means we relieve you of all that pressure. Writing a personal statement should not just be a list of the things you have done and achieved in your academic career and personal life. This would just be dull and would not raise the interest of the admissions tutors reading your personal statement. Sadly, this is what many people who are applying for a university course do on their personal statement. Therefore, letting us custom write your personal statement, adding flair and creativity and really bringing you to life through the page, will immediately set you apart from the rest.

You may be struggling to link some areas of your past academic career to something related to the course you are applying for. Again, with our personal statement help, you will find that nothing in your academic record is simply irrelevant. Tell us some of your achievements and our writers will link this to important areas of your chosen course. For both undergraduate and postgraduate statements they know exactly what admissions tutors are looking for, and are therefore in an ideal situation to make optimum use of your achievements and experiences to get you a place on your top choice of course. It is also very easy to get your personal statement custom written by one of our expert writers. We do everything via email, so it is instant and straightforward. We offer at least one free round of amendments with our custom writing service for personal statements, although amendment requests should be in line with your original requests. Each personal statement is proof-read and scanned for plagiarism before it is sent out to you. We guarantee that your statement will be created for you and only you, and will not have been re-hashed from past personal statements, which we know many other companies tend to do. While we will store your personal statement for a period of time, it will not be resold or delivered in any way to anyone else. It will be your personal statement and yours alone.

It is clear to see how a custom personal statement created by our specialist writers could help you land the university place you are dreaming of. We believe in promoting academic excellence and want to help as many students as we can realise their dreams and ambitions. Many fall at the first hurdle because their personal statement is not up to scratch. Don’t let yourself be one of those whose application ends up on the rejected pile. Instead, let us give you the boost you deserve and get your name noticed by the people who matter through our creative and professional custom-written personal statements.

Like many IT experts, I have tremendous knowledge of my subject but not so good powers of self-expression. I asked the company to help me and they sent me a statement which included all the information I had given them in a really well organised and impressive fashion. I was amazed at how good I sounded!
