So my UCAS application is being sent off at the end of this week, with my personal statement being basically finished. But I still can't decide if I should apply for St Andrews (my first choice) for Modern History or just history. If I do apply for Modern History, St Andrews is the only uni that does that course so all of my other applications will just be History. Should I mention the phrase "modern history" in my personal statement,? Am I more likely to get in if I apply for modern history? I'm so confused and stressed please help

stick with history. i might be wrong but if my subject at st andrews (biology) is anything to go by, modern history and history are both the same degree just with different module combinations - often only in the last two years (i really shouldn't be lazy and look it up before i answer though lol)

yeah stick w history otherwise it will look like you dont know what you are applying for. You want to make it work for both basically. Don't stress and good luck

I've spoken to my history teacher and she said that my statement was fine as I talk a lot about things that happened in modern history anyway, and it works for my other choices as well
