    I'm applying for a business and ICT course at Aston University and University College London, however, these are the 2 main universities that I'm eligible to apply for because I only got a C in GCSE maths which meets their requirements. Other unis that offer it like Uni of Manchester, etc all need a B in GCSE maths.

    I'm currently predicted AAB or potentially AAA as I got an A in business studies at AS Level, beating my target. I should be predicted AA in English and History

    So, I've looked around and I also like the look of Business and Management at uni too, so could I apply for Business and ICT at Aston and UCL and then Business and Management at other unis like Uni of Leicester, Nottingham Trent etc to fill in my last 3 options on my UCAS form?

    And if that is possible, how should I go about incorporating both topics into my personal statement? I've already done my first draft which emphasises ICT in business more than the management side of business.

    Thanks!

    You dont have to use all five choices it's tricky to get the balance so you would have to mostly stick to the business part rather than the other parts of the courses

    As above, it's possible with a well crafted personal statement, however you don't need to apply to all five. If you focused your personal statement more on the management of ICT operations rather than the development and implementation of such operations, it would probably be suitable for the general business courses - however it may slightly weaken the statement in the eyes of the ICT Management courses specifically. If these courses are your primary interest, you may find it "safer" to apply to them only, and then if necessary apply through clearing to other courses (and you can submit a new personal statement in clearing, so that removes that limitation anyway).
