    Hi, I am starting my UCAS application for my undergraduate degree and I am looking to apply to Anthropology for 3-4 of my options and Forensic anthropology for my remaining 1-2 options. I know forensic anthropology would be considered a very specific area of anthropology. My question is are these two degrees similar enough to apply to both without causing major problems as I know its ideal to not to apply to degrees that are too varied as admission tutors dislike this and I don't want to harm my application.

    It's possible - you're best contacting the universities offering forensic anthro to check whether you would be disadvantaged if you applied with a more general anthro PS. They may well be happy to accept a PS that's more general or they may offer to let you send them through something more specific to them directly.
