    :eek: oh I should have made it clear, I'm looking to go into the 'business' field rather than the law side of things.
    Then it wouldnt be considered a disadvantage and would at least raise interesting interview conversation... as long as you can justify studying a subject you had no intention of perserving at!!!

    Eek. This frightens me I would be aiming for the top 10 unis and Oxford was definitely one of mine (I LOVE the sound of their course on their site!!)

    Hmm... I still have a while to think about it really. Is that a general rule for all joint honours courses, the fact you're less likely to get it?
    As in alternative courses ie. English and Philosophy? yes....
    As in joint courses at universities such as chest-(something)... less so, because generally, once you get into those grade requirements more people are applying for both as they enjoy both but there isnt the need for them to be 'The Best' at both so they are willing to accept more applicants (from talking to friends and lecturers that is)

    ps.
    I'll PM you whether or not I get anymore offers if you like, if i can do it ... you CERTAINLY can!!!!

    pps. Oxford... I think in 2009? they didnt accept a single student for joint eng and hist... They generally get 80-ish applicants a year and have 11 places :O but are of the principle, if none of the applicants can be outstanding at both, then they wont be taken for both...
