如何寫好UCAS/ JUPAS Personal Statement? 有啲咩需要注意?

✅Avoid cliches😂

唔好喺到話自己好細個就對某樣野好興趣🧐因為其實呢cliches好冇substance


✅唔好錯grammar👊🏻

搵英文老師幫你睇吓啦,相信佢會好樂意幫你😆我之前都好驚佢會拒絕,不過turns out佢勁nice呢

如果真係搵唔到,就用grammarly幫吓手😂


✅Use of "I"

Personal statement係一篇personal嘅野,所以d句子出現多d "I"同埋避免用passive voice


✅Concrete examples

如果你要講你自己有d咩skills, 一定要畀d實質嘅例子去講, 咁樣d admission officers先會畀你說服到


✅小心d word collocation

我都知大家想喺PS show off吓自己嘅英文😂想用靚字,但要注意番collocation嘅呢樣野, 亂用d字會令到你句野好唔自然同埋畀咗個差嘅impression畀d admission officers呀 (e.g. skills通常都應該配hone/develop/refine/polish呢d verbs)

想避免呢樣野就查清楚字典先用d靚字啦


✅要有一個好好嘅introduction

呢個係你畀reader嘅第一印象, 佢睇唔睇落去就睇你第一段寫得夠唔夠中pt, 特別同引人入勝

要寫一個好嘅intro一d都唔容易,如果真係冇咩靈感嘅話,可以寫曬內容再諗呢樣野呢


✅American VS British spelling (e.g. modernization VS modernisation)

如果係UCAS嘅PS, 建議用番british spelling啦

同埋要consistent, 如果你成篇係American spelling, 就成篇都跟住係咁啦


✅問多d人拎意見😂

我份PS問咗超多人拎意見, e.g. 我屋企人, 英文老師, 負責UCAS嘅老師etc...

每個人睇你份野都會有唔同嘅意見, 雖然拎好多意見好似令你自己唔知聽邊個好, 但正正喺呢個時候你就學識去judge邊樣野係真係有用邊d冇

我覺得你可能會因為d意見令自己份野有好多變動, 但其實最終我覺得篇野係需要有少少個人風格🙈
