Uniboosts’ Story

Making your application smoother, simpler and more successful

UniBoosts believes in something simple: a better way of evaluating personal statements. 

During my time at school, I recognised the difficulty of writing a statement that succinctly summarises your passion and achievements. Undoubtedly, such a daunting task deserves more support given the lifetime impact of university applications. There are many guides, books and websites that provide tips on how to get started. However, very few resources are available that aim to analyse and improve your finished statement.

As a result, I embarked on a mission: to provide a simple-to-use, effective and affordable service that aims to boost your chances at reaching your dream university.

UniBoosts Founder; Medical Graduate from the University of Cambridge

During my time as a medical student at the University of Cambridge, I extensively marked personal statements for numerous friends over the years and assisted them in reaching some of the UK’s top universities. Upon their suggestion and wish for more accessible marking services, I founded UniBoosts.

My objective is to level the playing field by providing such evaluations to all students that need it. Therefore, I aim to minimise the effects of factors outside students’ control (for example, school or location) upon personal statements and UCAS applications.

When I’m not practicing medicine or operating on statements, I enjoy calligraphy and fencing.

Uniboosts’ VAlues

We believe in a flexible, efficient and ethical method of helping students perfect their personal statement while providing it at an accessible price point to assist as many people who need it. We highlight mistakes and areas requiring improvement, describe our reasoning behind our suggestions and provide an overall review of a personal statement’s impact.

In the same vein, we do not edit personal statements. Critiques reflect our views and opinions on how the statement could be improved. 

We take pride in our approach of providing the best of both worlds – covering the multifaceted nature of personal statements whilst offering concrete advice based on extensive research, experience and expertise.

In short, we’re not satisfied unless every aspect is picked apart to assist in achieving your personal statement’s maximum potential.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why don't you write/edit rather than evaluate personal statements?

We believe that writing or editing personal statements treads on the edge of plagiarism (a definite no-no). More importantly, without personally knowing you, we would only be able to produce generic sentences.

Reviews also provide us with versatility. Personal statements can be filled with numerous suggestions that reflect the multitude of opinions that surround the subject. This makes it easy to pick and choose which advice you want to follow according to your own preference.

How are your prices so low?
We believe that our services should be accessible to as many students as possible. After accounting for all our expenses (and some pocket money), we have managed to minimise the prices of personal statement reviews as much as possible. This is further assisted by the fact that we are online-only, allowing us to optimise and simplify all our services to specifically cater to you.
My school has offered to mark my personal statement. Do I need this?

It is great to hear you have such good support!

Help for personal statements from schools usually takes the form of superficial feedback rather than an in-depth critique and analysis of each sentence. Furthermore, it is difficult to exclude the element of bias – as independent reviewers, we are able to provide reliable, objective evaluations. We greatly believe in the quality of our service and, naturally, are strong advocates for the use of our reviews.

Do you have an example of a reviewed personal statement?
What subjects can be reviewed?

UniBoosts offers reviews for all subjects. Since its inception, UniBoosts has provided reviews for a whole range of subjects, including: Medicine, Law, Engineering, History, Economics, Business Studies, Mathematics, Pharmacy, Literature & Film Studies, Fashion, Artificial Intelligence, Management Studies, Astrophysics and more.

Will I be guaranteed a place in university if I follow your advice?

Whilst we provide the ultimate evaluation service, the answer is quite simply no. We critique personal statements and provide suggestions that are aimed at improving your application.

University applications rely on many other factors, such as your grades and interview performance. In addition, different people will have different opinions upon any piece of literature.

An aspect that we can't control is your different achievements and interests, which does play a role in the effectiveness of a personal statement. For this reason, our service includes highlighting and focussing upon your strengths to help you stand out from the crowd.

How are personal statement evaluations delivered?
Evaluations are accessibly and rapidly sent by e-mail in a .doc format. This provides you with an easily editable document for your future work.
Is my data safe?
We take privacy seriously. Quite simply, we are not affiliated with any other organisation or business and will not pass on your information to any third party except for necessary purposes.
What are your working days?
Monday to Friday, except for UK bank holidays.
