UCAS is a very efficient organization which really helps lots of UK students with their university enrollment. I used it as well when I needed help with finding a course and a university to study it at. Naturally, same as all the other potential students I had to write a personal statement. Knowing that this paper is vital for being accepted I approached UCAS personal statement writing with all the responsibility and seriousness and I advise you to do the same.
To begin with, you should clearly define the course you want to apply to and learn as much as you can about it, because each personal statement is a very specific paper aimed at convincing the admission comittee of accepting you. Also, before writing your statement, you should bear in mind that it should be truthful and really personal.
Next, you ought to know from the very beginning that UCAS personal statement should be an essay of about 4000 characters in which you are to mention your family and educational background, your most noticeable achievements, your abilities, reasons for choosing this particular course and why you think you are the right candidate. In case you want your essay to be crisper, you can use the following essay structure:
Paragraph 1: Introduction to the subject, the aspects you’re interested in and why
Paragraph 2: What you have done related to the subject that isn’t already on your UCAS form
Paragraphs 3 and 4: Work experience placements and relevant activities at school
Paragraph 5: Your interests outside of school, particularly those that show you are a responsible and reliable person
Paragraph 6: Your goal of attending university and a memorable closing comment
In addition, it will be reasonable to pay special attention to the beginning and conclusion of your essay, as they draw the readers’ attention the most. Moreover, don’t forget to proofread and edit your essay properly after writing it in order to avoid mistakes.
If you will still find it hard to write your personal statement, you are welcome to look through other candidates’ essays and use them as templates. If this still won’t be enough, you can always use the help of custom essay writing companies, like writemyessay.biz service for instance.
Good luck with your enrollment and take care!

To begin with, you need to get a clear vision of what a research article critique really is. Article critique is a piece of writing (usually done in a form of an essay) in which you should analyze and criticize the paper you are given. You should keep in mind that a critique essay is not just about summarizing, it requires your own opinion on the subject to be given.
Firstly, before tackling the assignment of writing a research article critique, I strongly recommend you to read the research article thoroughly. It is advisable to read it twice: you will get a general overview while reading it for the first time, then, when reading for the second time, concentrate on details and make some notes for your critique. While analyzing the work make sure that you notice both positive and negative aspects of it.
Afterwards, get down to planning and writing your research article critique. When I write my critique essay I usually divide it into 3 main parts: introduction, main body and conclusion – the usual and trivial essay structure but a rather convenient one.
So, in the introductory part of your paper you are to give some basic information about the article you are writing your research article critique on. Make sure it includes the following: Name(s) of the author(s), Title of article,Title of journal, volume number, date, month and page numbers,Statement of the problem or issue discussed,The author’s purpose, approach or methods, hypothesis, and major conclusions.
Going further, get down to writing the main body the bulk of which should consist of your opinion and grounded critique. In it you should highlighten all the aspects of the work you are given, starting from the topic of the research, its relevance to the field and ending up with the author’s writing style. In order to make your paper more specific you can answer the following questions in the main body of it:
1. Is the objective of the experiment or of the observations important for the field?
2. Are the experimental methods described correctly?
3. Are the study methods appropriate for the purposes of the study?
4. Have the procedures been presented in enough detail to enable a reader to duplicate them?
5. Are the statistical methods appropriate?
6. Do you find any content plagiarized?
Finally, in a concluding part you are to summarize all the arguments given by you stating your opinion concerning the research article. Nevertheless, it is very important that your opinion was objective and reasoned if don’t you want to get your research article critique criticized by your professor
