    I'm applying for International Relations at St.Andrews, but I am really interested in modern history and they offer an excellent course at St.Andrews for it. If I were to apply for International Relations and Modern History as opposed to applying for International Relations as a single-honours, am I making it harder for myself to get an offer?

    Will it not be considered by both the Modern History department and International Relations department as well as general admissions, which is ultimately adding an extra opportunity for the departments to disagree with my application is it not?

    It's easier to get onto most courses than you think, as long as you meet the minimum entry requirements. Even then you could miss them by a mile and still have a chance. You'll likely be fine.

    Thanks for the advice, are you speaking from experience by any chance?

    To be honest less people actually do a Joint honour degree because of workload and various other factors

    Yeah I was considering that too, could always drop one though if possible and take a single subject into honours.

    Yeah I got an offer to study Biology with Spanish at Imperial. It wasn't exactly joint honours but still.
