Its 4000 characters or 47 lines, whichever one is longer.
Check how many lines you have used up on UCAS.

The maximum amount of lines is 46 or 47, can't remember, but you may have exceeded that? Especially as lines on UCAS are 93 characters wide which may be different to your word processor.

Otherwise I can't see why it'd be wrong, but is it possible for you to shorten a sentence very slightly to fit everything in?

Edit: Also the word count of Word may be an approximation, I know that the character one is. :p: Maybe that's why?

hahaha 3999. er, you put any mystery spaces at the ends of paragraphs or something?


mine was 42 lines and 3500 characters on word, then 5 lines too long on ucas sorted it out thoughh. i'm curious, should i put like a line between paragraphs on ucas like
para 1

para 2
or just para 1
para 2
i did it like the first way and it'snow exactly 47 lines and well under the chracter limit

As others have said, you are just going to have to cut the extra characters out. The UCAS form basically converts everything into a standard format and this can be differnent from Word, especially as the 47 lines is in size 12 format approx.

OK, thanks for the help, I managed to squeeze it in, also able to put 2 one-line gaps in there (that will make it easier for the reader's eyes ), but at the expense of a full stop at the end :eek: (I doubt would be a big problem?)
