    I didn't have a problem with it, 3000 Characters and 46/47 lines used so no idea how you are supposed to write 4000 characters without it being a horrible block of text.

    You cant indent on ucas with the Tab button, you have to put in spaces before the beginning of the sentence.

    By the way (note I'm not starting a new thread for this topic), how do I make an indentation to show I'm clearly starting a new paragraph??? I looked at my bro's statement which he printed off UCAS ages ago and that shows indentations that show new paragraphs, how could I sort this out?
    Ucas removed the indentations. You either need to leave a whole line (using up one of your 47) or have one mighty block of text.

    That;s my problem, I can't seem to be able to do that, well I do it and it does not show up when previewing the statement! This is reallllly annoying, now hard to distinguish one of my paragraphs from another...

    It which case you have to leave them out, if you can spare the lines then add a line between paragraphs. Otherwise make sure that the last sentence of every paragraph isn't a full line.

    I used a big block of text (well, I started new lines for paragraphs but didn't leave an empty line).

    If the admissions tutors are that bothered by it they can always format it themselves afterwards to make it easier to read, and I thought the extra content I could add would make up for it.

    Well it's down to the individual, but it's a risky decision if you ask me.

    You only save 1-2 characters by not skipping a line, plus it looks better. I am not claiming to know about all admissions tutors, but if I were one, I would prefer to see skipped lines between paragraphs rather than a block of text. A block of text is much more daunting

    But there's also a lines limit on the PS, so effectively you save a lot more.

    I'd probably prefer to see it as well, but ATs know the limits students face so I would imagine they'd sympathise with people who couldn't. It didn't seem to count against me too much anyway.

    I know it couldn't make that much of a difference to your application. I found it was the character limit, not the lines limit that restricted me. I had 4 paragraphs and yet found it was the character limit, not the line one that stopped me from writing more.

    out of intrest what did you use a dash for?
    I was talking about practical skills I learnt during work experience. And wrote...

    Furthermore the practical skill of taking a patients history highlighted the importance of good communication with the patients- and also with other medical staff.

    Or something to that effect. I think that is grammatically correct...
