How does it work?
For only £139.99 we offer a comprehensive editing and review service for your UCAS personal statement.
We’ll ask you to upload your personal statement along with other relevant information about your university application, such as your predicted A level grades and the universities you are applying to.
Within 48 hours, the editor will return a fully edited copy of your statement, along with a 1300-1500 word report highlighting the changes we’ve made and why, along with other suggestions to improve your statement.
Once you’ve made alterations to your statement based on our report, you are entitled to send it back to your editor 2 more times, who will review your improvements and make suggestions on how you could further perfect your statement. This will increase your chances of securing a place at one of your preferred universities.
As part of our special Platinum service, you will also be able to contact your editor during the 48 hour period with any other questions you may have about filling in your UCAS application.
If we require any more information regarding your application in order to provide the best possible service, we will contact you immediately.
Currently, we accept payment only via Paypal. Paypal accepts all major credit and debit cards (including Solo, Switch and Maestro) and allows you to pay quickly and securely for goods and services online.
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 university admissions tutors in the best possible light. From fixing single spelling mistakes to rewording whole paragraphs, we will critique, edit and polish each line of your personal statement.
Your editor will apply the same techniques used to edit books, newspaper articles and other printed publications to your personal statement. 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
- Improve vocabulary
- Ensure a consistent style and ‘voice’ is used throughout your statement
- Check paragraph structure flows cleanly and the statement works well as an original stand-alone piece of writing
Your editor will also focus on issues specific to writing UCAS personal statements. They will:
- Show you how to write a memorable introduction
- Ensure all topics for discussion have been adequately covered
- Assess the relevance of the content you have included
- Check a correct proportion of the statement has been dedicated to each topic
- Help you articulate your strengths and skills and in order to sell yourself to the reader
- Remove references to potential weaknesses or topics that should be avoided
- Assist with rounding off your statement with a solid conclusion
Your report will contain the following sections to help you fully understand all of the changes we’ve made:
- A detailed review of your existing personal statement
- A summary of your strengths and weaknesses
- A list of the improvements we’ve made and the reasons for doing so
- Recommendations of other areas of your statement that could be improved
