How does it work?
Each one of our services provides a comprehensive review and edited version of your Oxbridge personal statement.
We’ll ask you to upload your personal statement along with other relevant information about your university application, and within 5 days, we’ll return your statement fully edited, along with a report detailing the improvements we’ve made. Our Silver, Gold and Platinum Express package options allow you to select a shorter turnaround time if you need your statement edited sooner rather than later, and help you meet the early 15th October deadline.
What’s included in the editing process?
Each personal statement we receive is carefully reviewed against a number of criteria designed to ensure you present yourself to Oxbridge admissions tutors in the best possible light. From fixing single spelling mistakes to rewording whole sections, we will review, edit and polish each line of your personal statement.
Your editor will apply the same techniques used to edit books, newspaper articles and printed publications. These include:
- Correct any spelling and grammar issues
- Fix the misuse of punctuation and capitalisation
- Reword poorly structured sentences
- Prune unnecessary words and over-long sentences
- Ensure a consistent style and ‘voice’ is used throughout your statement
- Check paragraphs flow together cleanly and the statement works as a whole
Your editor will also focus on issues specific to writing Oxbridge personal statements:
- Show you how to write a memorable introduction
- Ensure all topics for discussion have been adequately covered, including sufficient coverage of why you want to study your chosen subject.
- Check the correct proportion of the statement has been dedicated to each topic
- Articulating your strengths and skills to help sell yourself to the reader
- Remove references to potential weaknesses or topics to avoid
- Help you round off your statement with a solid conclusion
- An overall high standard of writing expected by Oxbridge admissions tutors.
What do we include with your order?
Once we’ve finished editing your personal statement, you’ll be emailed the completed statement along with a report detailing what changes we’ve made to your statement and why.
Your report will contain the following sections to help you fully understand all of our changes:

- A summary of your strengths and weaknesses
- A list of the improvements we’ve made and the reasons for doing so
