Science Writing Guide

Where To Start
The personal statement provides admissions officers with a quick and easy way of understanding your suitability to study science at university.

A well-presented personal statement focused on your scientific skills may be the difference between acceptance or rejection. Every word needs to be understood and every sentence should be clear and to the point. But the real skill in writing the science personal statement is to get results.

Writing a good personal statement is more than just correct spelling or an excellent portfolio; it is about what you say and how you say it. Poorly structured statements that do not give clear reasons as to why you want to study science will get you about as far as your university grant. 

It sounds obvious, but unclear and unstructured personal statements are the number one complaint of university admissions officers in the UK.

Within this guide we reveal the answers to these questions and the hidden secrets of how to write your art personal statement. We understand admissions officers, we listen to them, we talk to them, and we keep our eyes and ears open so we can help you achieve success.
