    I did mine in size 12 Times New Roman, and I believe that is the "standard" font UCAS advice. I'm not sure, though.

    Yeah, they resize the 4 sheets to fit on one sheet of A3, makes it easier for the universities to store and UCAS to transport. That's why you need to do it in size 12.

    I did mine electronically and C&P'ed it into the space. It changed it for me automatically, I think

    Are we talking about the online system ('Apply' i think it's called) or the paper form. I think the online system has a set font, but don't know what it is. On the paper form you're technically free to use any font style and size you wish, though most people go for the standard arial or times roman. The font size has to be large enough to be readable when the form is reduced by 1/2 so a font size of 12pt is recommended, though you could probably get away with 11 or so.

    If you want as much space as possible to use you can fiddle with all manner of things such as margins, kearning and leading with a good DTP program - here are a few tips to get more words on the personal statement
