Project Description

I am apply to University through mature age entry and I need to submit a personal competency statment, which talks about life experience and qualifications and how this will affect my ability to study at Uni. I need someone that can write at a very high level and take a summary of the information I give them and expand it into the required information the Uni needs.

The statement had to be 1500 words or 5 pages. Information on what is required for the statement is below.

Please only bid if you are capable of writing an amazing statement for me!

What is PCA?

Institutions recognise that many aspects of a person's life experience may results in the development of skills, abilities and knowledge that relate directly to successful tertiary study. The Personal Competencies Assessment (PCA) allows you to demonstrate your capacity to successfully complete tertiary study by submitting a written statement.

PCA is not recommended as a means of entry for current internal Year 12 students.

How do I apply for PCA?

To apply to have your personal competencies assessed, indicate 'YES' to the question relating to 'Personal Competencies' in your application. Please note there is a non-refundable processing charge to submit a PCA.

The statement should be approximately five typed pages or 1500 words. Statements more than 20% longer or shorter than 1500 words may be penalised. The statement should also be accompanied by supporting documents and referee reports. You should attempt to address all the PCA competencies and indicators listed (see Schedule below) using examples from your life. Institutions have rules about how each competency is weighted in determining the overall PCA rank, but QTAC recommends that you address all competencies and indicators to the best of your ability.

Your statement should address the following categories:

Tertiary Preparation

Tertiary Maturity

Independent learning Strategies

Interpersonal and Communication Skills

Achievement and Experience

Skills and Knowledge

Please note that supporting documents can only be submitted in printed form. Please do not submit CDs, DVDs etc.

Referees' written reports are used to support your claims. You should supply two referees' reports with your written statement. Do not include the contact details of referees in place of written referees' reports. Often employers or co-workers can provide referee reports that comment usefully on your maturity, time management and communication skills.

Referees' reports should include:

the basis on which the reference is provided (how you are known to the referee)

examples of your ability to manage time effectively; collect, analyse, organise and use information; and carry a project through to completion

examples of your ability to communicate and work with others

examples of your achievements, experiences, and competencies that demonstrate your capacity to successfully undertake tertiary study

How will my PCA be assessed?

In order to allocate a QTAC Selection Rank, your PCA will be assessed according to how well your written statement demonstrates your likelihood of successful tertiary study. This assessment will be based on how successfully your statement addresses all six categories and their associated indicators listed in the PCA Schedule.

QTAC strongly recommends that you demonstrate as many of the indicators as possible in your statement. You may also include additional indicators not in the PCA Schedule. It is important that you demonstrate each indicator that you include in your statement - you can do this by providing examples to back up your claims.
