Examples of personal statements for UCAS

I find mathematics challenging and enjoyable and I believe I have a natural flair for the subject. There was no doubt in my mind in choosing mathematics as a degree. Much of civilization was built on the foundation of mathematical principles. I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of problem solving that mathematics provides. For me, it is a thoroughly fulfilling discipline.

I believe I am conversant in all areas of the subject. I particularly enjoy pure mathematics because of its rigorous demand of pure logic and problem solving techniques

I belong to several mathematical groups and societies on the net and I enjoy reading publications of a mathematical nature, for enlarging my knowledge beyond the content of my A-level syllabus. I have represented my school in a challenge competition. I also contribute in our sixth form newsletter. I am captain of our school rugby team and I am also a competent pianist and am a member of the choir as a pianist.

For the past 15 months I have been working part-time at a high street retail outlet. Although not particularly demanding mathematically, it has enabled me to perform and react well under pressure. I undertake extensive customer relations in a high volume environment, advising as to appropriate merchandise to meet and exceed targets. I also dealt with general queries and complaints and established good relations to improve customer retention and effectively resolve problems as they arose.

However, I have since left this job to concentrate exclusively on my A2 course. I sincerely look forward to a fulfilling career in mathematics and I am confident my chosen establishments aptly match my capabilities as well as my strong aspirations towards a successful career as a mathematician.
