UCAS remove it when you paste your personal statement. It's fine.

Because you're allowed 47 lines and wasting space by not indenting paragraphs means you wouldn't be able to fit as much on as you're allowed, so they indent it for you and take out any blank spaces.

Altho you can (and it is recommended) to leave blank lines in between paragraphs to make them easier to read - those will stay

Ucas do NOT indent paragraphs for you.

If you don't leave blank lines between paragraphs then your PS will appear to admissions staff as a block of text.

If you're lucky and your line breaks are in a decent place tgen your PS might be as readable as

If you leave blank lines in then your PS will be easier to read and what you say will have much more impact.

But if we leave blank spaces then won't we waste the 47 lines?

It's not wasted if it means they don't throw your application aside because it's difficult to read

On an unrelated note, do you know if we can use the '&' symbol instead of the word 'and' ?

Unless it is in a company or brand name then no.

You *can* use & but you *shouldn't*
