    Word of advice - you only get one personal statement to cover all the courses you are applying for and you will have a difficult job writing one which covers so many different courses. Any hint of irrelevance will be read as a lack of commitment or knowledge of the course, especially for such competitive courses as the ones you list. Standard advice is to decide which course you really want and apply to all similar courses. When you are talking about Industrial Organisation in a ps geared towards maths at Cambridge, you are setting yourself up for a fall. When enthusing about maths in a ps to be read by Warwick for a course which doesn't include maths, you will come across as ill-informed. For a real chance at any of them, think it through very carefully.
    Yeah. Definitely need to think things through. These are just the few courses that seemed to jump up to me when going through the university database. But thanks for the advice!

    You should take Chemistry, Biology (this is important!), and Math 2 just to round it off. Good luck!
