However Durham's geog department is so good, even if i got a Cam offer I would seriously consider a possible Durham offer over it.

I think it'll have to be the BSc, I do too many sciency subjects for the BA, although i do take Sociology.

This is what my school told me about writing personal statement when I applied:
First topic: Your choice of course
Explain why you wish to do the course you have chosen. You need to be enthusiastic. Think about:
aspects of the course you enjoy
putting theory into practice
work experience confirmed interest
wanting to study subject in greater depth
any other reason
Also may be helpful to introduce your career ambitions
Second topic: Suitability to university life
You need to show that you have the ability to complete the course so what personal qualities do you possess which will show you can do this? You could refer to self-disciplined, motivated, hard working, commited and sociable. You do not need to give evidence to reinforce your comment.
Next topic-Benefiting from university life
You need to consider what you will do with your time at university when you are not studying. You will need to show that you will take advantage of the other activities which are on offer. They will also be interested in what you can contribute to the university. Admission tutors will be looking for a well-balanced individual.
Final topic-Concluding statement
This final paragraph gives you the opportunity to remind the reader about your choice of course and why you will make a successful student. Before writing this final paragraph, read through what you have written so far then do one of the following:
think of an experience which you have not mentioned relating to your degree course.
think of an experience which you have not mentioned which relates to suitability for university
identify an area which you have already mentioned and find a way of building on it for a concluding comment about your course or suitability for university.
Dunno if that helps
