What you should know about Character counting
For computers, a character refers to a letter, number, or punctuation mark that can be shown on a screen, or printed. There are also some unseen characters, called control characters.
1,2,8 equals 7 characters.
2,30 equals 6 characters.
Note: Spaces are counted as one.
Tips for using our character count tool
Write your essay first before you paste it on our character count tool to calculate the number of characters. This would make it easier for you to know which words or sentences to add or remove from your text.
For example: A student who wants to apply to UK universities through UCAS would have to obey UCAS’s rule for personal statements. The maximum characters for a UCAS personal statement is about 4000. The minimum characters for a UCAS personal statement is about 1000. To achieve maximum results, It would be better to write you personal statement on a word or text file. This would make it easier to make corrections along the way. It would also enable you to easily stick to your main idea.
