How can I order my critique & edited work?
You can place your critique and editing order using the online order form. Please fill in this form in full. You will be offered various options that will affect the price of your personal statement critique and editing. Once you input all information and decide on the best price plan - you will be asked to make the payment. Once the payment has been made the writer will start the work.
Our writer will take an objective look at your personal statement and will edit and amend it to fit with the requirements set out by your tutor, or to fit with their professional opinion. They will also ensure your personal statement covers all the necessary criteria for university applications.
On top of this, your personal statement will be proofread, so that it reads perfectly with no spelling or grammatical errors. This is a specialised area of work and while spell checking and having someone else read over your personal statement is helpful, it does not compare to having a trained eye give it a thorough edit.

How does this process work?
Our personal statement critique and editing service is a two-part process.
Firstly, you will need to complete the order form and send us the personal statement you have written, along with some details about the university and course you are applying for. If you have comments from your tutor – please also provide them in this form. Once the payment is made we will start the work. We will match you to the most suitable writer we have available. Following the allocation of a suitable writer, they will then be instructed to start work on a full personal statement critique, highlighting the strengths of your personal statement and pointing out the weaknesses. They will provide you with a list of suggested improvements, things that in their expert opinion will make your personal statement stronger and give you more chance of making the right impression.
Once this is complete, we will then email you the list of suggested improvements, the personal statement critique, so that you can have a chance to look over the points that have been made and make any additions or amendments if you so wish.
You will need to approve the proposed changes and (optionally) provide some comments. Our writer will then proceed to editing your personal statement turning it into something which stands out from the rest. Please note that due to the nature of this service, delivery time will be calculated from the moment you approve your critique.
On top of this, the writer will do a full personal statement edit, correct any spelling mistakes, grammatical errors or anything else that affects the flow of the personal statement.

Am I entitled to a secondary revision for free?
You can email us within 7 days of receiving your personal statement if you feel the writer did not meet your requirements. All we ask is that you read the entire statement in full and make a list of the points you feel weren't met and send the amendments request in ONE email. Any requests that are outside your original instructions will incur an additional charge from the writer.
We are happy to complete amendments free of charge as long as they are in line with your initial requirements and do not include extra work not originally asked for or a sizeable increase in the word count.
