    In my personal statement i state i want to apply for a 'maths with finance and accounting' course but there are unis that i want to apply to that don't offer the exact course, or the course names don't match the name exactly. Like i want to apply to loughborough for maths with financial management and accounting and to exeter for maths with accounting (which includes finance content in the course)- so would it be fine to apply for these courses?

    I would advise amending your personal statement slightly so it covers all of the courses you're applying for. If you do not wish to do this then do not apply for those courses.

    Its a tricky one, I applied for Ancient History/Classics with one PS and thankfully it was open enough to include both but I see the challenge.

    I've changed it, saying that i just want to study these subjects at uni, keeping it more general rather than saying ' i want to study this specific course'. Would you say that would be enough to cover my different course applications. Cheers

    Should do. If I can't do the law course at kent I plan to do the politics and law course - I just added some politics stuff to my statement. Good luck.
