    But havn't decided 100% yet, I think getting into maths + stats is easier is well
    Really? I would've thought Maths + Stats is harder to get into, considering maths is one of the most over-subscribed courses. And I can't really imagine actuarial science being that competitive - I thought it was quite niche and most actuaries actually come from Maths/ Physics/ Engineering

    In some uni's the entry requirements for actuarial science is higher :cry: So my final decision will be based on my results

    Perhaps applied maths or maths+stats isn't that competitive as most applicants tend to go for just maths?

    Okay guys...

    Had C3 today, glad I finished really early because there were a few questions which too me time to get right...

    I spent for ever trying to do one question and realised I copied out my equation wrong which is why the "show that" wasn't working...

    Anyway, rectified it all

    So, I'm hoping I got 70+! I mean, if I lost marks on my functions work (there was a whole extra question!) it'd be about 3 marks lost maybe...

    Overall... I feel I'll be able to try for an A*!

    If you're indecisive you should got for Maths + Stats, keeps your options open as with maths you can pretty much go into anything! Including actuary . Actuarial science just speeds up the process as you get a few exemptions early...

    Yup, only reason why I would go into maths+ stats is because of that! Yeah, exactly, i'm not set on being an actuary so probably won't do acturial science!

    Also, theres only like 2 maybe 3 unis that have really caught my eye so I need to see which courses are best for which uni etc

    I don't why but after 10 mins in the C2 exam I felt like I was going to fail and stopped working and started thinking about the re sit for a few minutes. Finished it in 30 mins though. ( I didn't talk about what's in the exam or if it was easy or hard)

    Have you thought about Maths + economics? You'd get to do plenty of Stats in that too .

    Don't think you'll be able to discuss it anywhere if it's Edexcel until midnight
