    As I prepare to submit my completed application (it's due today, 6th Jan - I wanted to take my time to ensure it was exactly what I wanted to submit) I'm panicking. The email I recieved asked for a "short 1,000-word essay" but then referred to the "1,000-word limit " - do you take this to mean that the essay must be exactly 1,000 words or just a maximum of 1,000 words? :confused:

    I think it will be standard essay rules. 10% above or below stated word count
