Well now I'm confused... - January 21st 2010, 07:31 PM

So I'm trying to write my personal statement now so I can get my UCAS form in early next year.

I've read a few examples on websites and I've been reading guides of what universities want but I read something on one website that got me confused.

Can the personal statement only have 47 lines in it? And also is there a limit of 4000 characters (including spaces)?

Yes the limit is 47 lines OR 4,000 characters including spaces, whichever comes first.

I think mine was 47 lines and 3,800 ish characters, so I met the line limit first, but for some people it is the other way round.

A lot of people get 'extra lines' by not leaving a line between paragraphs which Universities don't mind.

look on www.thestudentroom.co.uk for a lot of examples specific to your course
