    Hey
    I´m thinking of applying to Oxford, LSE and Kings to study economics.
    At LSE and Kings i´m applying for pure economics, but at Oxford they only have economics and management. Is there a problem writing a personal statement for both pure economics and economics and management? And how focused should I in that case be on writing about management?
    Is it then smarter to apply to pure economics at Cambridge instead? And are there any other universities in the UK I should apply for if I'm looking to study economics?

    I´m applying from Norway btw, so a bit hard to show what kind of grades I have, but I´m probably in the top 1% at my school (pretty average public school)

    You should apply for whichever uni and course you like the most. It would be silly to apply to Cambridge just because you think it would be easier to write the PS for if you don't actually want to go there.

    Durham is fairly popular so might be worth looking at. York, Bath, Bristol, Nottingham, and St Andrews are also good unis.
