  44. 44. HOW IS PERSONAL STATEMENT USED BY UNIVERSITIES? • You need to meet the formal entry requirements of a course, as laid out by the university. • However, if the FINAL spot on a course comes down to you and someone else with the same grades, what you write in your statement could nab it for you.
