    Hi there,

    I am applying for the PGDE in Scotland and I'm wondering how many paragraphs the ideal PS should be...to make mine easier to read I would like to break it up into several separate paragraphs, an introduction, couple of paragraphs about my experience followed by one about my previous employment then conclusion but this may take me over the 4,000 character limit. Should I limit it to just three paragraphs, intro, a large middle paragraph then conclusion? What are others thinking?

    Many thanks.

    That's what I did, three paragraphs to make it concise but if you have another subject I would definitely write another paragraph and shorten the other one

    I would say between 4-6 (separate paragraphs for intro and conclusion), depending on what you are talking about
