    Is anybody else writing an essay for this? I'm doing the English question: "How do the arts contribute to sustainability?"

    I'd be interested to know how everyone else is getting on

    hello there, I have been entered for the humanitites essay. I have completed it, but am in a bit of a pickle! It is arial 12 font, 15,900 characters (inc spaces) and fits on 4 pages. However, when you put it in 1.5 line spacing, it goes to about 7 pages! Have you encountered the same problem?

    Good luck anway, Joanna

    No, I didn't write enough to have that problem. They've changed the entry guidelines now, so it just needs to be 4 pages and the character count has been dropped. Looks like you have a bit of trimming to do

    I did Technology. Really surprised I got through though as it was a quick type up because my head asked me to do it. If I'd have known I'd have got this far, I'd have put a bit more effort in! Nervous for the 6th though; apparently it's going to be a whole day thing and it's only going to be at the end we'll find out who's won!
