Hey everyone, I’m submitting my UCAS application today but my personal statement has 570 extra characters than what’s required. Could someone help me out and help reduce the count, I don’t want to discard anything that might be important. Any help will be appreciated

Ask someone to proofread it and try to think through each thing you wrote and discard the things you think is not as important, in other words, rank them

Hi there,

I hope you're well

I know it's a bit of a tedious thing to do, but maybe go through each sentence and see if there's any value to what you've wrote. If it doesn't add anything to your character, skills, or passion for the subject - then it may be worth having the chop! I had this problem when I was writing my personal statement so I know exactly how it feels, it can be so frustrating! But, being a bit brutal and chopping full sentences out may be your best bet. Alternatively, have a look at synonyms for words and see if you can find words that are shorter, but this is quite a long process!

Best of luck to you,
Ana - UoL Ambassador
