Thanks to my college's IT staff I can't access UCAS Apply until mid-september. Could someone who can, or who knows, answer a couple of questions for me?

Does each character occupy the same amount of space?

If so, how many characters are there per line?

And do blank lines count towards the line limit?


Thank you.

yes blank lines count towards the line limit.

In terms of characters on your ps your allowed 4000 characters including spaces in all the statement.

Thank you for your reply Kirsty!

However, I need to find out how many characters there are per line as I fear I may be over or near the line limit, though not yet the character limit. Does anyone know?

I can;t get to my UCAS login details since they are stored on my college account and email which has timed out over summer, without warning.

I'm doing mine on my mac. I checked, in size 12 times new roman there are 95 characters a line. To be honest though, this limit is the least of my worries about the PS, I'm having a bit of a panic... ARghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Good Luck!

if you need help with your ps don't forget theres the ask a ps helper forum where you can get helpers to review your ps confidentially -ie no one else sees it but the helpers.

The line limit is 93 characters. This guide might help with the formatting: http://www.studential.com/guide/ps_online.asp.
