    I have applied to do Comp Sci at Oxford, York, Southampton, and Warwick, but also for Maths and Linguistics at York. I am seriously considering the final option if I fail to get into Oxford. Does anybody on here do Maths & Linguistics, or Linguistics? Oh and by the way I am in my gap year and have unconditional offers for all of them but Oxford.

    I think that Maths & Linguistics could be more interesting, but also that I the phonetics/phonology rubbish in Linguistics could be very dull, and that the maths might be too difficult for me.

    How easy is maths? (I have done further maths and got an A, but did pretty poorly in FP3 got a C so I'm not sure how easy I'd find university level maths)
    How interesting is linguistics?
    Any helpful info would be much appreiated.

    If I got into Oxford but decided I would rather do Maths, do you know if there are any precedents of switching from Comp Sci to Maths?



    Thanks for any help.
