    I would like to apply to Sutton Trust for the UK summer school. I wanted to study Chem Eng as university so I chose nottingham to do a strand called Chem, Physics and Astronomy. Now I have changed my mind and want to do Economics because the work load from Chem Eng is far larger than I am capable of doing. There is a strand at Warwick called Economics so it would be perfect. However, due to Warwick's better reputation I believe more people will apply to it so I wont be able to get in. Whereas, I believe my chances for getting into Nottingham are much better. I'd rather go to a summer school that wont help than not go to one at all

    Firstly, will a Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy summer school help when applying for Eco at Warwick at all.

    Secondly, should I change to the Economics Summer School.

    They are to help you as an individual, not to pad out your personal statement.

    Also the Nottingham one might help reassure you about your original preference of ChemEng. The workload isn't really that much greater than economics. Tens of thousands of people study it, most do very well.

    Choose the course that interests you, not the one with least work (because I think you are in for a shock if you think economics is "easy").
