Dear Theo - silly little box on application form!

    Dear Theo,

    This will hopefully be my final question about this bloody application that I've been doing for about 2 weeks!

    I have my ES all ready to go and you said to put that in the space on the form that is for extra information but the box on the form is teeny weeny and I can't fit it all in. I don't want to split it between the form and another sheet so my question is what should I write about in the box before saying "Continued on separate sheet"?

    I've already written my "personal statement" type things in the letter of application.
    Thanks

    I believe that I say put it in the box - if it is a page big . . . . but you clearly cannot put in a daft weeny box.
    So do it as an extra page to your letter (so it gets printed out automatically) and in the weeny box put some weeny info. Such as you can play the piano for Assembly, or are keen to run a cookery club, or have a first aid certificate.
    Best of luck!
