    They're similar enough. You shouldn't really have much trouble, just talk about the shared themes and why they interest you.

    I applied for two different courses but they were related. As your choices are quite similar (I'm guessing they're all maths based?) you can just not name the exact course 'I want to do accounting' but rather say 'I want to do this course because...' so that it applies to all of them.

    Just treat it the same as a usual personal statement, try to make sure you mention skills/why you want to do it/ previous work experience you have that would suit all of the subjects but don't make it too generalised.

    Sorry I don't know how helpful this was but it can be done (I've known some people to write a personal statement for sport and history) just try to sell yourself as best as you can.

    I'm assuming this guy is talking about something like MORSE at Warwick rather than applying to all 5 subjects.
