    Anybody here?!

    Is it okay to embolden certain parts of the PS on the UCAS form or should we just leave it like it is?

    Also, should you leave a line inbetween paragraphs?

    -Get rid of parts not needed.
    -Don't repeat yourself.
    -Proof read, if there's a sentence which seems too long shorten it.
    -Delete excess words.
    -UCAS often rearranges the format slightly from what you used on word. If there's a line with only a few words on tweak the paragraph to get the line back.

    Good luck. Writing it for the first time was the hardest part in my opinion.

    It won't let you, when you save it makes the format the way it wants it.

    To Airport Fairy:
    Mine was over by 26 lines, I went to my teacher and she cut out a whole lot, then I went through it restructuring sentences so they said the same, but in less words. Thesaurus time!
