    If its for joint should you write about both subjects or just the one you like the most? Sounds stupid I know

    I'm in the exact same boat! I think the going advice is if all your applications are for the joint honours subject, speak about both and how they link. If only some are for joint honours, talk generally about both subject without mentioning either by name.
    If your two subjects are completely different (i.e. Biology and Film Studies, also known as my dream course), apparently it's best to just ignore one of the subjects completely and talk about one of them.

    Speak about both. If you don't like one of them much, apply for single honours.

    Very simple logic says talk about both.

    Haha I like both but may be applying for the course that is single honours. I'm going to have a long think, thanks for the help
