Reviewed by Expert Mentors

Our reviews are completed by our expert NHS Doctors. Our mentors were chosen because of their previous experience with reviewing personal statements on behalf of medical school and helping students write outstanding personal statements.

Avoid Common Mistakes

There are a number of common mistakes students make when writing their personal statements. These often include poor structure, poor reflection and cliche comments. Our mentors will highlight these to ensure you can make alterations and avoid these common mistakes.

Reflecting Correctly

Most students’ personal statements are overly descriptive and lack good quality reflection. This is often a result of “experience stuffing” or “listing” – which is when students believe adding lots of experiences will impress the Admissions Officers. In reality Admissions Officers are looking for a few key examples with deeper levels of reflection.

Analysing Key Experiences

It can be difficult to decide which experiences and achievements to include in your personal statement. Our mentors will help you to choose only those that add the most value to your personal statement and will help you draw attention and reflect correctly on these key experiences.

Strike The Right Balance

You only get one chance to make a great impression with your personal statement, so it’s important you strike the right balance of professionalism and personal character. Our mentors will analyse your language, examples and tone to ensure you find this tricky balance.

 

Thinking Ahead

Some medical schools will use your personal statement at the interview stage. Having a strong personal statement will not only help you gain an interview it will act as a strength at the interview stage as well. Make sure you are confident in your personal statement by having it reviewed by our expert mentors.
