Why can't I just use the resources from my school?

You could use the school resources, but what we found and the reason we created this service is that many students were not getting the full support they needed from their school. Of course, this isn’t the case for all schools, but we found that with the pressure of teachers / tutors having to plan and teach their usual lessons, mark work and write UCAS references, many just don’t have the time to read and give detailed feedback to every student that comes to to them for support. Sometimes the support can therefore be rushed or could be much better if that extra time was given.

How do I know that your services will really help me?

We have over 10 years experience helping students write their personal statements all over the country. For every student we helped. They either received an unconditional or conditional offer at their choice of university. We are confident in our abilities as our three step process has been tried and tested.

Can’t I just use a friend's old personal statement to help me?

Of course you could but using someone else’s work could very easily lead to parts of it being copied which could get you in trouble for plagiarism. Also, that person’s personal statement has been written specifically to suit their A levels or btecs, their skills and course applied for. Yours should be very different from anyone else’s and unique to you.

Will I definitely be called for an interview?

No, not every student is called for an interview. This will depend on the course and university you have applied for. It’s always good to be prepared just in case you are selected to go in for an interview.

What if I need to make changes to what I have done?

Remember we are supporting and advising you on writing your first draft. Once you have completed it, we then read and give you feedback. With this model, there should be minimal need to make changes, but if you feel you need to, then you will be able to re-submit it for another round of feedback.

How much will it cost?

It depends what services you would like. Please refer to our pricing page for further details.

What is the difference between the packages?

The Silver Package focuses solely on guiding you through how to construct your personal statement, step-by-step. If you are applying for an institution where you know you will be expected to attend a pre-selection interview, then we would recommend you opt for the Gold Package. This package includes examples of subject-specific personal statements, interview guidance, and if required, the option for a live mock interview. Our Platinum Package allows you to add additional services. For example, if you have a pre-written personal statement, we offer a proofreading and editing service. Or if you have purchased the Silver Package and later decide you would some interview guidance, we can add this at a later date for an additional fee.

How long do you take to give us feedback?

We aim to give feedback within 1 week. Speak to us if you need an express service.

Are my personal details safe with you?

Yes, they are. Please refer to our privacy policy. All information submitted to us is treated with the strictest of confidence and stored according to the law on data protection and GDPR.

Can you write our statements for us?

This is not a service we offer, and we would not recommend you doing this with any organisation offering it for the reasons stated in question 3 to do with plagiarism and uniqueness. Only you can make your statement extremely unique to you and this is what UCAS wants. They want you to demonstrate that you have the ability and skills required to write a statement.
