This presentation from RGU provides an example of one method of writing your personal statement, which is very useful. This is not the only way to write your personal statement however and you should ensure that you research different ways, talk to your Guidance Teacher and make sure you write in a way that works for you too. The links to the UCAS pages below will help you with this.
