    Everyone has to do the same thing. As far as they're concerned a new line will represent a new paragraph so don't worry

    Edit: within reason, obviously not EVERY line but you get my point haha

    Shouldn't be an issue, when I applied for university they automatically deleted the space anyway.

    Aha yeah I know what you mean but I talked to admissions tutors and for them all they really see is a block of text shrunk down to like size 8 font so they're used to it
