If I apply for economics but my personal statement is geared towards history and economics would this put me at a disadvantage, or lead to an unsuccessful offer or a course change.

I’ll just give a quick breakdown:
Grades:
Business Studies-A*
Economics-A
History-B

Desired Undergrad course- Economics/Political Economy

Personal Statement- Geared towards history and economics

Potential Universities:
UCL- HPE- Needs AAA- Was rejected on results day
LSE- Economic History- Needs AAB- Poor social life and very competitive. Exceed the grades but am aware I have a narrow subject path that they look down on.
KCL- History and Political Economy- Needs AAA- Currently firmed and on course to study
KCL-Political Economy- Needs A*AA
Manchester-BAEcon- Needs AAB
Manchester- Modern History with Economics-ABB
St Andrews- MAEconomics- Needs AAA
Edinburgh/Glasgow/Exeter also thinking but not sure

So looking at this I have courses with history to be safe however I do not want to study this. Ideally I would prefer to study pure economics or political economy. Would my personal statement having both put me at a disadvantage?
