need help writing my personal statement

I am applying for university in Britain and im currently writing my personal statement. The space for the statement is so small, its incredible. Anyone got some tips for me? What do i have to include…whats not really necessary…etc

I’d definitely play up the part about fighting off bands of attacking monkeys!

No experience with such applications, but if you want to shoot me whatever you come up with for proofing/comments - feel free.

(Hoping I caught all of the typos…)

This article gives some good advice:

Good luck.
