Hello I am two lines over and reciveing conflicting answers, should I remove line spacing from paragraphs or shall I leave them in and try to cut one or two sentences off?

https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...d.php?t=677791
This says that line spacing will automatically be removed

The article on WhichUniversity.co.uk says to leave them in and that is their first advice on that personal statement website

I would like to know, if you personally have chosen to remove or to leave the paragraph spacing and also would like to know if you have either applied to oxford/cambridge/imperial, did you choose to leave the extra paragraph space in?

you dont have to tell me that you have applied to which university, I m just interest in which option is the best

I think if you can leave lines inbetween paragraphs it's ideal, however the content matters more I applied to one of those universities this year and personally didn't leave a blank line between each paragraph, as I had to cut it down by 3,000 characters and ended up with 45/47 lines
