    Mate don't worry. It's just a different title for the course. It's like...I applied for 5 unis - 4 were tittle Business Studies & 1 was tittle Business & Management. It's still the same content in the course.

    Here at St Andrews, 'and' means 50-50 and 'with' means 66-34. The Wise One may be correct at other universities, but that's the general idea.

    This is wrong.
    Let's take an example of "Physics and Chemistry" and "Physics with Chemistry"
    In the first case you would do a less physics and a more chemistry than in the second case - the course content is definitely not the same. There will be a lot of overlap, sure - but they're not just different names for the same course.

    At my University, 'and' is a Joint Honours course. This is where time is divided equally between two subjects i.e. 50:50. In 'with' combinations, the first named subject contributes 2/3 of the subject content.
