Like in terms of applying, are joint degrees harder to get into in university as you have to fulfill the requirements of both subjects and your personal statement will be limited to half half.

No, a joint honours course will have its own entry requirements that take into account the nature of the course and the subjects involved. The admissions tutors will judge your PS according to the course you are going for, so of course they will realise that two subjects are involved.

Not at all. It makes little to no difference. Your PS will be judged on its own merits.

It is harder at Oxford - I was reading the prospectus, and there's more of a chance of getting onto say a History course there instead of a History-Economics or more of an applicant success rate for just Theology rather than Theology-Philosophy... No idea why this is, must just be more popular to combine the subjects, therefore its more subscribed to and harder to get in!
