    Hi can you amend your personal statement to tailor it too differnt universities.
    I want to apply for dentistry but put pharmacy on as my 5th choice, however I went to the open day and they said my personal statment must contain pharmacy otherwise they dont accept it.

    Normally not, You can e-mail admissions departments and ask if they'll accept alternative personal statements, but they're under no obligation to do so, and most wouldn't purely for the administrative hassle. You might have to apply elsewhere for pharmacy if one university says they won't accept a Dentistry PS.

    Some places e.g. Durham, allow you to submit a different PS but the vast majority don't and there is generally no option to do so

    No. The only exception I know of is Cambridge who allow you to write a special personal statement (although according to the above poster, Durham also allows a unique PS). Is it really a sensible idea to apply for dentistry and pharmacy?

    Cambridge don't allow a completely new statement like Durham, but they do have an extra 1200 or 1400 characters in the SAQ (just to clarify).
