    Hey I'm at the point where I believe my statement is ready.. However Word cheated me and didn't tell me the 4 gaps I have in between each paragraph counted as characters. I deleted something so I can get those characters, but now I'm over my line limit. I am 3 lines over, however when I saved and went to "view all details", the whole statement is still there and it hasn't been cut off at the end. What is going on?

    By the way it isn't 4 gaps in between each, its just the total I have overall in the statement.

    Yea I can see that now. XD I'm just wondering the fact that UCAS has said I've gone over the line limit but no removal of my personal statement has been made when saved is a problem or not.
