    Hi all, I am currently writing my personal statement but I am coming up short and I can't seem to get to the 4,000 characters. What structure should I have? Should I have one thing before another and how can I bulk it up?

    I'm hoping to study Geography at university next year if that helps any... thanks!

    You could look in the personal statement bank in TSR and find the section for Geography They have a great collection and could help you a lot

    I would aim more for 3300-3600 characters, as the line length normally gets reached first Check the guidance in my signature below for general advice on writing a PS, but feel free to post more specific questions
