    This is a terrible idea. You won't be able to write a personal statement that covers both courses convincingly, and you won't be studying both anyway so you'll have to decide at some point. It's much more sensible to decide now which course you'd prefer and then apply accordingly.

    The best thing you can do right now is decide which one you prefer instead of trying to write a statement covering both. I know it's not what you want to hear.

    It's a struggle to talk about one subject you care about in 4000 characters, let alone two. You just wouldn't be able to express your love for them both convincingly.

    I have a friend applying for 4 medical courses and one arts course and he has spoken to the uni directly about these circumstances and they agree to consider him with a portfolio despite his medical statement so this is something to consider doing. HOWEVER this probably wouldn't work for your courses considering they are more academic and competitive.

    Your best bet is to just decide now, the deadlines not for a while so you have time to weigh everything up!

    You will have to choose between A&F and Biomed at some point, and that point is now, *before* you apply.

    Ok thank you!

    I am currently writing my personal statement for A&F. I have never studied these subjects before, however I do maths A-Level.
    Are there any tips you have that I could include in my ps?

    Why do you want to study A&F? That's what you put in your PS...
