    I have been looking into paramedical science and I also am looking into an undergraduate degree in psychology, and I can't decide between the two so would prefer to apply for a mixture of both courses, but I am worried that I will not be accepted if I apply for two different courses as my personal statement won't be able to be subject specific. Does anyone have any experience in this area? I am especially worried about paramedical science as it says your personal statement has to be specific to the course.

    yes you would likely be rejected from paramedic science with a non specific statement, can you get some work experience so you can easier make a decision ?

    As those courses are very different it would be very very difficult to have a personal statement that applies to both. Have you researched these careers? the oppertunities? the difficulty in each? also the requirements for each course? do you meet them all? the decision may be made already depending on grades etc. For example, you need a driving license for paramedic science, you also need a natural science subject for many psychology courses
