42 lines of word processed writing size 12 times new roman, when using the electronic app, or as many words as you can squash in the box if you write it.

I'm pretty sure it's 54 lines. And no you can't go over, they won't let you. They tell you how many lines you have left or how many you're over the limit.

I can confirm that you have 47 lines, with 71 characters on each line, when applying through the Electronic Application System.

Oh rite lol

Well there is plenty of space but not too much - which is good because it forces you to be precise and efficient in your use of language. I wouldn't worry too much yet, you will get lot's of support from your college.
