Hello I am looking into applying for economics at Cambridge, and joint mathematics and economics at other universities. I am applying for the joint-course as opposed to straight economics because I really enjoy the quantitative side of economics and the application of mathematics to economic models. I know that the Cambridge economics course already is rich in math-stuff, so I will be happy with it, while economics at other universities sometimes don't have as much mathematical content in them (hence why I'm applying for the joint course). How should I approach writing my PS? Is this sort of thing (applying for different courses at different unis, albeit related) common, and okay to do? I apologise for my ignorance - it's all very new to me.Thank you!!

It should be fine as long as the math stuff you talk about is also covered in the Cambridge course. You shouldn't come across as unsure or undecided.

I too was thinking about the same thing as you. I'm planning to apply to LSE and was wondering whether to apply for both econ&math or just econ. In your case, however, since the Cambridge course too is rich in math, I think it will be safe for you to spend half your time talking about econ and half about math.
