How can I apply for two different courses at the same uni? Is this something you would suggest? They are pretty different courses but I love the uni and really want to go there so I want to give myself the best chance

Does your personal statement content have to match what is written on the reference?
E.g: My teacher is writing that I am an Ambassador, do I have to mention this on PS if I don't have space.

Would work experience be classed as extra-curricular?

Fill it with effing and jeffing and talk about the wrong subject.
