    I've just checked my UCAS application and have finally got an unconditional offer for MORSE (Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics & Economics) at Warwick. I'm definitely going to study there, but I now have the dilemma of choosing which course I want to do there as I already have an offer for Economics at Warwick. I'm sure I'd enjoy both degrees so I guess the decision shouldn't matter that much, but I still have no idea what to do and both course seem to have equal pros and cons. Any opinions on the courses or suggestions on how people have gone about making their final decision would be much appreciated.

    MORSE is some hench subject. Warwick is the only uni that does it and they only accept 90 people a year for MORSE, unlike 200 odd for economics, so its more exclusive to do MORSE. I would go for MORSE, but then again, it depends whether you enjoy economics or if you want to be a bit more broader. The statistics you do in MORSE is the same as what the maths students do, so MORSE isn't a subject to be frowned upon!!

    As someone who would like to study Economics, I would say

    MORSE > Economics. I personally couldn't handle MORSE but if you can, it's much more of a challenge than Economics and isn't that partially what life is all about? Seeking out challenges and fulfilling ambitions.

    Definately MORSE... The course is very optional too so you can do MORSE and still end up doing a lot economics if you want... but i suppose you already knew that...

    Unconditional offer!!! Congrats. I need AABa or AAA for MORSE. Did you take a gap year or something?

    Yes, I'm on a gap year at the moment so I've finished my A Levels. I'm giving myself a deadline of this Sunday to make a final decision, so I'll read through the two course handbooks between now and then and see whether that helps. Hopefully I'll have the option to reply on UCAS website by this then, because it isn't on there yet. I'm more interested in Economics than in the other aspects of the MORSE course, but I'd still enjoy them all. Having not done Economics at A Level, I'm slightly worried I might not enjoy the studying the subject at university as much as I do when I read about it purely out of my own interest, so I guess the other options available in MORSE would be useful. Good luck with meeting your offer! Is MORSE your firm choice? What subjects are you doing?

    Think of it like this...u'll have to be doing maths and statistics with ur BSc Economics anyway...so little more won't really matter...Plus with MORSE u can specialize on Economics such as acturial economics and financial mathematics.

    well it depends what you want in/from your degree.... I believe that morse is more aimed at financial stuff... whereas econmics is a bit more general. There are people more interested in economics but are also interested in maths/stats/op research so this will cater for more interests... like with me i like maths and economics so this is perfect... and morse gives me the options to do a lot of economics and still get acturial or CIMA exemptions...

    I do see your point... if your only interest is economics then why apply morse? its probably harder to get into morse too compared to eco at warwick...

    Yup you got the idea... thats the way to do it... at the end of the day its your decision and just choose which course suits you the most... or if you are still unsure MORSE has the greater flexablity personally pure economics is too essay type degree for me... i don't mind doing essay... actually i quite like doing them... but not in exams and not all the time...

    MORSE is definately my firm choice.
    Backup would be plain maths @ Imperial (ABBb) or might be LSE(maths and eco)/UCL(plain maths) if they ever respond to me...

    A-Level subjects are:
    Maths
    Physics
    Economics

    AS-Level subjects are:
    Further Maths
    Chemistry (already got a B but according to Imperial/Warwick this don't exist not included in offer :? i found this soo hard too)
    General studies (but this dont really count :P)

    I went to both the Economics and MORSE Open Days, and was more impressed by the organisation of the MORSE one. I thought the Statistics department really sold the course well. It certainly is harder to get into MORSE, the average entry standards for the course are 29.6! :eek:
