Default Patient Note - History style - narrative or bullets

Hi, USMLE forumers

I am now practicing Patient Note typing, and I am slow in it, and I think that bullet style for HPIis better for me. BUT the problem is, that there is a line limit of on USMLE practice page. There are only 11 lines allowed. Actually, a lot of FA patient notes wouldn't fit into 11 lines only.

So, the question is: Did anyone use the bullet style and was able not to exceed the 11 lines limit? And how?
