    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 could apply to both courses if you wish. If you do, you'll need to focus your PS mainly on business, as that's involved in both courses. Then you'll talk about ICT - this will be fine, as ICT is still going to be included (although to a lesser extent) in the other degree. And you can talk about management, as that's involved in a general business degree.

    Orif you're finding this too difficult, you can always apply to the business and ICT courses initially, and then see what happens. You can add more choices to your UCAS application if necessary. As long as you add the choices before January 15th they would be classed as on time. So you apply for your favourite courses, and if you get offers you're happy with then you don't need to add the back ups. If you get rejections, or if they don't reply before the deadline, you can then add the other choice in Track.
