    So I finally received a reply from the Uni I've always wished to go to -- Exeter. I applied for Politics and Economics (LL12) but when I went on my UCAS track to check, I got an offer to study Mathematics (G100) instead! I am truly confused on whether this is a mistake or they really are offering me a totally different course. I mean I have nothing against mathematics, I actually really enjoy it but...

    Anyway, does this happen a lot and what should I do?

    Theres quite a difference between a Politics and Economics degree and a Mathematics one. I honestly think you should contact them or UCAS... I know I would.

    You should probably give them a call, I'd think history would get mixed up with those, but not maths!

    Did your personal statement show that you really love maths? As a PS Helper I've read many economics/business statements that start to imply a maths degree is actually what they should be applying for.

    Phone the uni asap and check it isn't a mistake. If they say it isn't, ask their reasons so you can find out why they think you're more suited to maths.

    I know right, there's quite a big gap between the two. I really should contact them. Thanks for the input

    I was thinking about the same thing! that if they really are not offering me the course I wanted, they'd offer me something like History but not Maths. Either way, Thanks for the input! gonna either email them or give them a call soon.

    I am quite positive that it doesn't really show that I love mathematics. But I did quite show them just how much I love to solve problems and come up with solutions, does that count?

    I definitely should, Thank you for your reply
