So err I've done my personal statement and put it through numerous personal statement checkers, but when I try and submit it it says I'm 5 lines over :/ Anyone else having this issue? How could it possibly be 5 lines over? So annoyed like.

my personal statement was more than 4 lines. Your UCAS personal statement can only have 47 lines or less than 4, 000 characters (I think). I used to believe it was only 4, 000 characters however, there is a line limit and some software's may not be accurate as I found on word my UCAS characters were less than the limit but once I copy and pasted it, the word count surpassed the limit.

You have to cut it down. You can copy/paste as you're writing/tweaking it in word ect. into the UCAS website, it doesn't matter that the ps checkers said it's fine - it has to be accepted by the one in UCAS.

The limit is 4,000 characters or 47 lines, whichever comes first.
