    I'm looking at the application form for my school's sixth form (since we're supposed to apply for courses September 2018 (whoa dude, right??) and don't have much idea abt the personal statement. (aah)

    They give about half a page, but it's separated into ~4 boxes (like so - attached)Name:  l.PNG

    and im unsure whether or not it'll look good to either a) go beyond the given space, because it shows being thorough (? - either that, or just being plain thick ) or stick to the space allocated because it shows disciplined/organised personality + planning (? - or just being lazy and not giving sh*ts).

    Also, i have <b>no idea</b> how to structure each box? Because i'm assuming that either way, you'll have to stick to the 'template' given.

    (If I have anything extra to add, that doesn't fit in the box theme thingys, should I just leave it out? Or add it in - if so, where??????)

    dudes pls help mega stres

    Personally if you run out of space just go to a smaller font and if the font becomes to small then do it on that page then do a larger fonted print out of each section

    That's... actually a pretty good idea! Tbh, I was going to handwrite it bc I hadn't thought abt typing it - but if i scan it or smth, i still just type into the boxes?

    idk, ill think abt it later tbh
