Writing a personal statement for economics and management

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    I´m thinking of applying to Oxford, LSE and Kings to study economics.
    At LSE and Kings i´m applying for pure economics, but at Oxford they only have economics and management. Is there a problem writing a personal statement for both pure economics and economics and management? And how focused should I in that case be on writing about management?
    Is it then smarter to apply to pure economics at Cambridge instead? And are there any other universities in the UK I should apply for if I'm looking to study economics?

    I´m applying from Norway btw, so a bit hard to show what kind of grades I have, but I´m probably in the top 1% at my school (pretty average public school).
