    So today I realised I have a major typo in my personal statement for L101 - I used the word "invectives" instead of "incentives". I know they look vaguely similar (and that's probably why neither my teacher nor I picked up on it) but the meanings are completely different, plus it's an economic term.

    Does this mean an instant rejection? And should I email them to let them know? I don't want to draw attention to it and it's been a month since I submitted it but I don't know whether it might improve my basically non-existent chances?

    Don't email them, if you do you would have more of a chance being rejected. Just hope they didn't notice as they don't spend too long reading personal statements. And it is quite common.

    You will be fine, admissions read your personal statement as a whole so they should see that 'invectives' is out of context.
