Hey guys. So I was re-reading my personal statement recently and came across this really minor error that I couldn’t spot earlier. I had quoted a book I read and wrote “book name’ instead of “book name”. Basically didn’t put the same quotation mark. Really minor I know but I just wanted to know if Universities penalise you on stuff like this. Thanks!

Hi the similar thing happened to me. I forgot to put a full stop after the end of my second paragraph. But someone told me to not worry about it too much. So don't worry, I think it should be fine.
