    i would just like to know if you can apply to unis for different courses, so for example if you can apply to UCL for computer science and Queen Mary for medicine can you do that?

    You can but you really shouldn't, you are only able to have one personal statement so you need to use this to look committed to your choices.

    I'm pretty sure you can because you only have to specify the course code on UCAS. However, I think this will be complicated since you can only send one common Personal Statement through UCAS and it'll be tough to tailor your Personal Statement to both courses.

    oh okay, lets say the a level options you have chosen only allows you to apply to one university only because you only meet their entry requirements

    Do you mean applying for 2 very different subjects in the same university?
    Again, as far as I know, there is no rule saying that you cannot do so. However, the fact that you're applying to 2 very different subjects to the same university (the university will not know of your other choices, but they will know that you've applied for 2 courses if it's at the same uni) may show them that you're not committed at all to one subject and thus reduce your chances for both universities. But if you want to apply for 2 courses, it is possible to do so.
