    Business Economics and Finance

    Would it be ok to talk about economics as my chosen degree in my personal statement? As in would this hinder my application to the acturial sciences course because this would not apply to that course as such. Or would it be best to mainly talk about maths (connecting statistics to economics etc) and mention a few things about economics? Im just finding it hard to know what I should talk about, not wanting to miss out things. Any advice how to go about this? Thank you

    Talk about economics mainly and about how your interested in the practical side of it in finance/actuary etc. I would mention maths cos economics places like that, but you shouldn't make it al about maths or they will wonder why you are applying for economics courses and not maths ones!

    Ok thanks Im just worried about talking about economics too much and it effecting my application to the acturial science course, but that is the only 1 so of course its more important to talk about economics.
