Hi guys, so im kind of annoyed at this whole 47 lines and 4000 characters limit. Im well below, about 200 characters below the character limit. However I am 3 lines over the line limit due to the paragraph spacing. I literally cannot cut down on my personal statement any more than I already have. Would it be bad to remove the paragraph spacing? I don't want to annoy whoever is reading my statement.

I removed paragraph spacing. I assume that's how UCAS intend it to be used.

Ahh okay, a lot of people have been telling me to cut down on it instead.

You should definitely aim to put whole line spacing between the paragraphs. Sometimes it is only a small change that can make the difference - it depends on your line length at the end of the paragraph. It makes it A LOT easier for admissions tutors to read, and they will be reading dozens at a time

I see, I have cut down on so much already and literally only have what is necessary on there.
