    I know this is a stupid question but should you put a space/line between each paragraph/section or not? I know that I probably should presentation wise, but it means that there would be much less in it.

    I would personally but a space line. When you are reading thousands of PS's, the easier it is to read, the better.

    yeah but considering you only have 47 lines [im guessing youre doing it electronically], wasting three or four lines between paragraphs may be unwise

    how about indenting your paragraphs or something, for presentation?

    UCAS removes any formatting including indenting, just stick with putting the lines in, not only does it make it easier to read but also shorter, which may sound like a bad thing but remember as said before they read THOUSANDS of these, the shorter the better in their eyes, well as long as its not too short, cover the basics but try not to elaborate just to fill space.

    No! I can't do it with lines inbetween!

    I'm writing my ps for three separate english-based courses... it *all* has to be in there. Oh Gawd.

    I can't fit mine in unless I take the spaces out, but then it just looks like a pile of continous words and its really hard to try and cut it down. Everything in it seems so important at the minute.
