So, I don't think the ps really makes that much of a difference, with liverpool anyway. They rely mostly on academics, then work experience.

Mine was a bit unconventional in that it was only being sent off to Nottingham so I could direct it specifically towards the uni a bit. Also I explained a bit why I didn't choose the right subjects etc etc. Anyway, it was good enough to get me an interview so I'll send it to anyone who wants it.
Hey, would you mind sending it to me? Thanks so much!

Ok well I had one or two days over the 10 weeks then, I just remembered it wrong. Anyway, main point being that I just didn't have enough of the right stuff

I think liverpool asks for 4 weeks (varied) practise and then 6 weeks animal care (farms/kennels/stables etc)

I'm not applying there, but I'm using their requirements as a guideline as the minimum I should have.

you cant change the font or size so no you can write it in word or whatever in any font and any size and it automaticaaly changes when you copy it into ucas.

Size twelve - but like karate kat said, you needn't worry about formatting as it is all automatically edited once you have submitted the application.

It must be cos I'm so great lol

I was worse the other day, my mind must have turned to mush or something. I went into school for a concert band rehearsal and forgot my trumpet, then I stayed at a mates house (we were both going to karate that night) and I forgot my belt (duh!!) and had to borrow her dad's as he also does karate, but it was so long I had to wrap it around 3 times, lol.

So, yeh, that was not a good day for me.

Have you separated it into loads of paragraphs? - Could you put some of the paragraphs together?

Yeah, gaps between paragraphs is a no-no!

The uni's will know you're trying to save on space, so just a new line I would say is fine.

I think the UCAS form is in size 11,so that should get your lines down. Was when i did a comparison with word line count and ucas line count
I have gaps in between paragraphs, looks a lot nice imo. I like having gaps, means i can talk more at interview, but im crap at writing loads of stuff. I'm glad its a 47 line limit else I'd have been right buggered.
I've also got one line spare, and Im not sure whether to mention my band or add Im planning on doing some lambing. Band most likely
