Am I allowed to use your services?
The services offered at PersonalStatementChecker.com are designed to be similar to the advice and support you may receive from your teachers, family members, and friends. As such there is no reason why you cannot use our packages. This is in keeping with the advice from UCAS.
Please note that this is very different to the services offered at other website where you may be asked to input your information in bullet-point format and the website personnel write a completely new fabricated personal statement for you. That is their work, not yours and it is tantamount to cheating. It is plagiarism and if you use those other website you run significant risk of plagiarism-dectection by UCAS.
Who runs PersonalStatementChecker.com?
PersonalStatementChecker.com is run by a team of doctors, lawyers and other professional graduates from Oxbridge and other top UK Universities. We have extensive experience with University admissions and personal statement editing.
Do you offer personal statement examples?
No, PersonalStatementChecker.com does not approve of supplying personal statement examples as these are often plagiarised. We encourage you not to plagiarise from sample personal statements online as this may lead to your offer being withdrawn.
What does the Checker package include?
The Checker package comprises of one Check and one free inclusive Review.
In a Check, you will upload your personal statement along with any other relevant details such as your AS level and predicted grades, and what Universities and Courses you are thinking of applying to. Our staff will then thoroughly analyse your personal statement assessing the content, flow, structure, vocabulary, spelling and grammatical issues. A report will be written which will be sent back to you within 96 hours with email notification. Also if you have any other comments or questions about your application you can upload these along with your personal statement and these will also be answered by our staff within 96 hours.
Reviews are conducted AFTER an initial Check. In a review you have one more opportunity to edit your personal statement and upload it to our staff along with any questions or comments you may have. Again, this will be thoroughly analysed and a report written for you within 96 hours. This is essentially so that you can "double-check" that you have made all the necessary changes to your personal statement.
Who checks personal statements?
Your personal statement will be analysed by our staff who are graduates from top UK Universities. Where possible, your statement will be analysed by an expert in your field of study.
I'm not sure which course I'm going to apply to, or which Universities to choose; can you help?
Yes we can certainly offer advice about University or Course choices. Simply give us details about which Universities and Courses you are thinking of applying to when you upload your personal statement. Please give us as much information about your reasons for or against any of the choices and we will offer you our very best expert opinion.
Can you help me decide between two different paragraphs/personal statements?
We know that sometimes you may have written two paragraphs and are unsure which one to use in your personal statement. In this case, please upload both and make it clear to our staff that you are trying to decide between them. We will look at both and give you our expert opinion. If you have written out two different personal statements, we will analyse both of them to help you decide which one to use. However please note that one package is for use by one person only. You may not upload personal statements from multiple people for checking/editing. No applicant is the same and no application includes the same work experience, hobbies, personal characteristics etc., so it will be immediately apparent if you are uploading another person's personal statement in addition to your own.
When will I receive the Checked statement?
We aim to process all orders within 96 hours. You will be notified by email when our staff have uploaded their comments and/or edited version of your statement. Although most orders are processed well before 96 hours, very occasionally it may take slightly longer due to unforeseen circumstances.
For an update on the status of your personal statement, please email email@example.com
