Where do you declare that you are reapplying

Jan 2019

My son is reapplying to UK universities through UCAS. He registered on UCAS for the second time, got a new UCAS ID, went through the form, but could not find the question regarding re-application. We know you can use parts of your old personal statement when reapplying, but where do you declare that you are reapplying? And not plagiarising by using your old personal statement?


You do not need to declare a previous application via the UCAS form. However, it would be advisable to use the PS to explain the history. It is not a negative to make a second application. Read more information about filling in your application form.
