    I am in a bit of a dilemma, I am applying to do a joint honours in computer science and physics at 4 Scottish Unis. However I also want to apply to Oxbridge for the same, but as far as I can gather the only way this is possible is during the first year of the Natural Sciences course at Cambridge. I feel that after studying a year of each subject at University level I will be able to make an informed choice on which course is right for me. However this creates a multitude of issues with my personal statement. Will mentioning computer science at all and physics as a particular area of interest jeopardise my chances of being invited for interview? I have taken this issue to the teacher in charge of personal statements at my school and he essentially said switch "physics" for "science", but I feel it makes it look far too vague. Would the Scottish unis understand that I meant physics if I said "physical sciences" when I was applying for a physics course?
