Stand out from the competition by completing a Subject Spotlight to gain the most relevant references and evidence for your personal statement.
This subject spotlight is made for students aged 16 and above, that are considering applying to University, particularly to study the subject in the title, or similar areas.
Completing a Subject Spotlight shows the university you're applying to that you've taken time outside of school to engage with relevant content.
The easiest way to include it would be to briefly mention one or two things you learned from it and how/why those learnings have furthered your desire to study the subject. We don't want to prescribe an answer because it's your personal statement but this is a good starting point!
