    Can anyone tell me the character limit for PSs rather than just the number of words? Thankyou!

    There is actually a template you can download from the UCAS website, which is exactly how much character space you have. Warning though: it is smaller than most people anticipate

    My PS was 1,913 characters including spaces...it was in larger-than-average font, and had plenty of line breaks in it. It still seemed too small...I guess I just didn't have as much to say as some people.

    when i did mine, on the application software (EAS), there was a line-limit of 38. i think it's equivalent to msword times new roman size 12.

    95 characters per line and you get 47 lines = 4465 characters max.
