    I am only applying to Uni's in London, and there are only two uni's in london that do Actuarial Science, the rest of the four im gonna do in economics...

    Two questions....

    1. is it recommended to apply for two courses
    2. Two different courses in the same uni.. (E.g. Acturial Sc. at LSE, and EConomics at LSE)

    People have told me its not gud to apply for different courses as it messes up ur Personal Statement... but both courses require economic and maths.. i could just write about my love for both, writing about economics abit more then mathss........

    1. Has any1 got applied for two courses at same uni, and got both offers?
    2. Has anyone applied for Actuarial Science?!
    3. Has any1 got an example of a personal statement for Actuarial Science, as i have neva seeen one!!!

    Thank u in advance..

    Have a look at www.studential.com
    Loftx (who runs the site) is a member here too. There may be something on there that might help.

    Well, I applied for economics, if that's any help!

    If you want to apply for 2 different courses, theres no reason why you can't. It just makes your personal statement more difficult. It's not impossible though, especially if the 2 courses are linked, as yours are.
    And there's also no reason why you can't apply to 2 courses at the same uni if you want to.
