    Hi, I am currently in Year 12 and wish to read Biological Sciences in Uni. However Cambridge's Biological Natural Sciences also seems like a really good course for me so I am just wondering if there is a way to write your personal statement such that it covers both courses? Thanks

    The two courses could be very similar depending on which modules you chose so you should cover both courses quite easily.

    Thanks for the reply! I am just a bit worried because I've heard that for Natsci personal statement you need to talk about more than one Science, is that true?

    Cambridge are well used to Nat Sci applicants having a different focus to their PS. That's why for Cambridge there is a special form, the SAQ, where you can add useful information. To confirm, let's summon the Djinn Doonesbury
