    Ok the UCAS limit on the length of the personal statement is really getting me down. I've had to cut out my paragraphs on education and hobbies...

    However, what is left I feel is really important since it demonstrates my interest for English and the experience I've had in the field of drama/storytelling.

    Should I try and re-edit or do you think it's far more important I get across my interest and experience with respect to the subject?

    I know education and hobbies are the most basic parts of the PS, I just feel worried to be leaving them out...

    Personally I'd say re-edit it. If you write it well you should be able to include all of your content within the limit. Try making it more concise while still keeping your main points

    Why not ask parents/friends/teachers how you can shorten sentences and still keep the content?
