    Hi,
    I've got offers from both of these courses and could do with some advice from current maths students, especially those at Manchester or Warwick.
    Basically, I know MORSE at Warwick is a great course to get into, however, as it's such a great course to get into, this also makes me realise how competitive it is, and therefore the ilk of the others who will be going. Thinking about graduate prospects, I realise that a first or upper second is what I need really and this would surely be harder as there would be many more geniuses therefore making the raw mark grade boundaries higher for the exams. So, considering the type of people who get into MORSE at Warwick, would I have to work every hour of the day and night to do well in MORSE or would I be okay to do the 9-5, treat it like a job, idea? I might just be being intimidated needlessly here, so need the advice!
    Also, any other experiences from either of the two would be great as well!
    Thanks,
    Danni

    I'd say you're being needlessly intimidated. If you have the drive and passion to understand maths and are willing to put the effort in, you'd do fine at Warwick. Yes, there are intelligent people here but there are plenty of people who aren't as quick and I'd be surprised if the course at Manchester doesn't require the same skills (commitment, passion). I think if you work 9-5 you should be alright, although you must also be aware that sometimes the workload is heavy and sometimes it is light so such fixed hours may not work as effectively.
