    How would you write it in your personal statements. I know I'm a bit late, but I am just doing the last refining of my statement.

    What is more acceptable:

    "I enjoyed Maths at A Level"
    "I enjoyed Mathematics at A Level"

    And in capital or lower letters?

    EDIT - The original sentence has the same meaning, but is different in words, so don't correct me on the sentence please. Just focus on the word maths or mathematics please.

    Comon, would you seriously think I would post the original sentence here? The original is completely different and sounds a lot better. Just focus on the word Mathematics or Maths please.

    Mathematics, in that case.

    Just make sure it's not cliché.

    Maths is fine, but either way use lower case.

    Thanks, but I don't quite understand what you mean by that. If I say

    "I enjoyed mechanics as part of my Mathematics course"

    is it capital in that case or not? Also the word Mechanics

    The only time you'd need to capitalize it is if you were talking about a specific qualification, e.g. the common modules for all students taking OCR Mathematics (MEI) are Core 1, Core 2, Core 3 and Core 4; Mechanics 1 is not a compulsory module.

    Since you won't be doing that, you can just stick to lower case all the time — I enjoyed mechanics as part of my mathematics course — and it'll be right.

    Lower case in that context, and first time as mathematics and subsequent as maths - that was how I did it.
