    Okay so what I really want to do is Economics with computing, however only two universities does that specific joint-honours course. And so I'm confused to what to apply my other three choices two. Originally I was only going to apply to 1 of the Universities with the joint honours and then split my 4 choices so that 2 would be just for Computing and 2 Just for economics, and then depending on where I get in and the grades I get then choose. Problem with this however is my personal statement, my tutor said I shouldn't write two different courses if I'm only applying to one course.

    The thing is I really enjoy both of these subjects and thats why I'm desperate to get into the joint honours but I'm terrified I wont based on my predicted grades. They're asking for ABB and I have AAD or ABD I'm still not sure because I got an A in one of my AS subjects but then my teacher was saying we'll probably get B's for A-Level. I am also doing EPQ as well in hopes that will boost my grades enough. However The D is from economics, however this is because my teacher literally taught us half the scheme wrong, we have a new teacher now and we found this out when he was recapping what we was suppose to know

    I have been looking for similar joint honours, for example I found A ABB/ BBB Computing and Management course. Obviously it's not Economics but it's more Similar then just Computing.

    Honestly I need help quick, my college deadline for our UCAS applications is on monday.

    Use the UCAS course search, you'll find every university that offers the combination of subjects.
