personal statements

basically i have wrote 2 and both have being said to be too personal and in wrong format
i have being given 2 example ones and there too good just to copy and personal to them
the net just annoys me in this course
the previous thread is too long to read and lacks a poll

so can i see what you guys wrote?
just remove the personal stuff

Re: personal statements

Perhaps tell people what you want it for...
A job application? If so, what job - i.e. you want to emphasise the appropriate qualities needed for the job.

Re: personal statements

i wrote one for going to uni, and also one to go into 6th form. both were different. depending on what it is for, you need to target it diffierently.

i like cheese.

Re: personal statements

Blimey, that brought a forgotten memory back from the past! I seem to recall that I had to write a personal statement when applying to university and it was done as part of my college Access Course, which was only about 2.5 years ago! Thing is, I can't remember what I wrote...

He'll need much more than a spellcheck, but I don't think babelfish has an option for "Daz_Rich to English"

Re: personal statements

Ignore all them i'll be helpful for you :
  • right start by saying what you are currently studying now and what you like about it i.e one particular module or the hands on experience something like that
  • what you want to study when you get to university (depends on if you have applied for more than one university)
  • Say why you want to go to university and do that course in particular (dont say because I want a better job, say to future my career prospects and to achieve my life goals of becoming a qualified engineer???. some crap like that).
  • Say what skills you have that will get you through university (life skills such as time keeping, ability to work on own and within a team)
  • Say what personal skills you have (ability to listen to others)
  • State your past achievements (duke of edinbrugh, school awards etc)
  • State your hobbies and what you do outside of college
It would help if you can include what you have written then we can all evaluate it for you.
