    hi ok i know there is another ps thread but plz bear with me ok. When you copy your ps into the ucas ps section do you make it so that there are visiable spaces between paragraphs, or do you just leave it. Because on my word when you press enter a space comes up but you cant type anything in between the spaces, so that when i come to copying it into ucas its all one big blob because if i edit my PS in ucas and make it so that there are visable spaces between each paragraph i will be over the line limit or i could leave it or 3rd option use indents.
    plz help quickly as im pretty late in getting in my ucas form

    {edit} happy !! i just copied it off my messenger chat :P

    There's no point leaving spaces as UCAS just clumps it all together. Plus, you'll need as much space as you can get.

    I have exactly the same problem. I want spaces between paragraphs but then im over the line limit, yet if i dont have those spaces it looks really bad. but does it matter? does UCAS clump all the lines into one big paragraph? im really stuck!
