    This is extremely tough.Universities are likely to reject you because your personal statement will be focused on all of the three courses you've mentioned.Pick one course mate

    Don't do that, you cannot write a personal statement to encompass all of those courses. If you're in a position where you can't decide between Maths, Engineering and Computer Games Design, you've not done enough research into what those courses actually involve. Have you actually gone through the modules to see what you'll actually be studying? Do you realise that there's a pretty huge difference between the way that pure Mathematics is taught at University to how it's taught in Secondary School?

    What exactly do you want from your degree? What are you trying to do with it?

    If you will decide to apply to all 3 of these courses (although I would recommend you to be selecting) then write 3 personal statements to each subject.

    All undergraduate applications go through UCAS at this stage; there is no other way.
