    I'm applying for Natural Sciences at Cambridge and Bath but Chemistry at my other choices. I'm struggling at the moment to write my Personal Statement, wondering how to balance it between the two subjects, particularly in the intro and conclusion?

    Has anyone applied with these subject combinations and been successful or is anyone struggling with this problem at the moment? Any advice gratefully received!

    Write it for Chemistry. Cambridge has the SAQ to give you an additional personal statement for them. And Bath has a 98% offer rate so a Chemistry focused PS is unlikely to be a deal breaker...

    Cambridge are well used to handling students who are applying for single science programmes elsewhere. Plus, as Jneil says, there is the opportunity to write more in the SAQ.
