Using the same personal statement when applying in the following year

After receiving offers and making a decision, I am really unhappy with my firm choice, for which I hold a deferred entry for 2017. When I start a new application can I use my personal statement again?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Hello Fiona,

You will not be able to re-apply through UCAS unless you decline your deferred Unconditional offer.

Your Personal Statement should change a little to acknowledge completed exams and explain why you are re-applying.

Best of luck,
