    Whist it was about 5 years ago since I used UCAS I seem to remember they just turn it in to a block of text when you view it on track. My memory may deceive me, though.

    Mines exactly the same and I made sure to leave paragraph spaces! I think it'll be fine, I imagine universities will probably see the spaces
