    Hi connormc199


    What part are you struggling with? Do you mean that you're applying for both Classics courses and Politics courses?

    If this is the case and you can't really seem to combine the two in your PS, don't worry. You can address the two topics separately. Many students apply for a range of courses and universities understand this so don't get too concerned with fitting them together.

    You could also look for PS guidance on the sites of the universities you're applying for, they should have some information on what you can do in your case. Failing that, don't be afraid to contact a member of admissions or even a member of the university faculty to see what they say!

    I hope this helps, let me know how you get on, and if you have any more questions.

    Thanks, your response is very much appreciated! Although the two subjects share similarities e.g. Democracy in practice today but originates from Ancient
    Greek, but i think i'll address the two separately.
    Now the introduction is the problem :P

    I'd say you should focus on why you want to study Classics and Politics in your introduction. The introduction is where you need to catch an admission tutor's eye and so its key that what you write is engaging and makes you stand out. E.g. what extra reading have you done which has built up your interest.
