    My personal statement is currently at 578 words, I have written about all the things I could possibility write such as why i'm interested in the course, my interests and work experience relating to the course.

    I was also told that my PS needs more excitement so what would I write to make it more exciting.

    How do I go about making my PS longer

    How many characters is your PS.

    The limit is 4,000 characters or 47 lines.

    The line limit means most PSs are 3,200-3,600 characters.

    Is that including a blank line between paragraphs and based on the UCAS Apply count?

    How about adding in something about a specific brand or campaign that you've looked at and your thoughts about it (what you liked/disliked, anything that surprised you etc)
