    So i decided basically i want a career in law.
    At A level I'm carrying on business, economics and law and i dropped maths, carrying over AAB into A2. I have requested remark for the B and my teacher is pretty sure it will come back as an A, because it has been marked very harsh.

    Anyway i am applying to 4 universities to study law and i really liked the idea of land economy at cambridge because it basically combines all my a level subjects and it quite interests me.

    But I'm so confused on what to include in my personal statement. It's mostly law related but then i linked it a bit to economics and business by saying how it influences certain policies, any advice?

    Why not just apply for Law at Cambridge? I'm confused. I mean I know you find it interesting but surely you're just complicating this process for yourself if you want a career in Law.

    I'm presuming this has something to do with Entry Requirements.

    If you apply to Cambridge you will have the option to submit a second ps through their additional questionnaire, you can use this to talk about land economy, you can keep your main ps about law so that you will achieve offers (hopefully!) from your other universities.

    ^this.

    OP, Cambridge has its optional PS section in their SAQ for exactly this reason.
