    My initial thought for uni courses to apply to were all History, but since I've been interested in Ancient and Modern History (or whatever they call it, it changes in different unis). I'll likely apply for those courses at Oxford and Exeter, and I've decided to apply to History at Birmingham too.

    But as I've been doing my personal statement and extra studying for it, I've realised that I really love Classics (which I also do as an A Level) and International Relations. I sort of want to apply for joint honours in Classics and History and then History and International Relations, but it's hard enough to write a personal statement for one subject and I have no idea how I'd actually choose one subject when it came to my offers!

    Can anyone help? I love all the subject areas I want to apply for and honestly I just want to do them all but I know I can't (unless I can do a mix and I didn't know about it).

    St Andrew's has Ancient History and International Relations. There may be others too...
