Ive applied to all five of my universities for a BSc in Mathematics however im having second doubts now..

Is having a Maths degree still as highly rated as it was?

Could I go into Investment Banking with a Maths degree or would they prefer Economics?

Ive got all five offers from university but my aim is to go into the Finance sector and now I dont believe a Maths degree is my best option?

What are your views?

Yes, it's just as respected as it's always been.
Yes, you can get into IB just as easily with a maths degree as with an economics degree. You would probably be looking at more quantitative roles, but those are just as (if not more) highly paid anyway so :five:

Take your Nottingham offer and you'll be just fine.
