Certainly don't spend much of your ps on a subject which is worth 25% of 1 out of 5. (I'm no good at maths - someone on here will be able to work out what a tiny fraction that is.) The standard advice is to decide what you really want to study before attempting to write a PS which links several different subjects. Remember that what you say about economics will be irrelevant to 4 out of 5 admissions tutors and they may think you are uncommitted or indecisive.(Original post by srascal8)
Wow, well this is my number one choice, but its the only course that I'm applying which involves economics, and even then, this course is only 25%, I've mentioned economics very little, other than clutching it in the last paragraph with the rest of my AS subjects saying it provides me with similar skills to history etc. would you say I wouldn't need to include much, 1) seeing as it is only 25% economics and 2) I am taking the subject at A2? Also, if I'm applying on the 31st October, does that mean I should get a response by the end of November?
I cannot guarantee that you will get a reply by a certain date. As they used to say on some financial advert or other, past performance is no guide to the future. My experience has been that for several years, this department has responded very quickly compared to other universities for other courses. That is subject to change at any time, maybe because of a change in personnel, policy, whatever. What will be, will be.
Anyway, Manchester's a good choice. I went there myself.
