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.

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?
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?
Of course. Please view our reviewed example here.
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.
