    I am considering applying to a few universities for maths and computer science, and some just maths. Do I need to change my personal statement as it is just about maths. Should I add in a small bit about computer science? I have no experience with computer science in any way shape or form.
    Thanks!

    I would add in anything about what has motivated or inspired you to continue your education with a newly founded subject (newly found by yourself) as you have no past with the subject.

    You only need to include a paragraph or so.
    Try programming and talk about it.

    As a sidenote, I was going to apply for computer science but then I decided to go for compsci and maths, so why'd you change it?

    The course looks good in the universities I want to apply, and full maths seems a bit daunting to be honest. I dont want to do full compsci because I still really want to do some pure maths. The entry requirements are also lower and average graduate salary is higher.
