Is Mathematics at Cambridge the hardest undergraduate degree in the world?Watch
Mathematics at Cambridge is widely considered to be one of the most challenging undergraduate degrees in the UK, if not the world. Of course, the matter is entirely subjective and relative to the individual but, do you think it would be fair to give it this title? Or can you think of more challenging courses, for example, Math 55, at Harvard? Although, that's not exactly a degree in itself.
There was a guy who came from MIT for a year abroad study at Cambridge and struggled. He was one of the top students in his class in MIT too. He said he had to work 3x harder at Cambridge.
I think this says a lot although it is anecdotal.

On the point of the OP, is there anywhere I could access the Mathematics course material of Cambridge? Such as notes, tests, assignments etc?
Yes - I guess it's how you define "hardest", and whether it's to do with the complexity of concepts or the sheer volume of information you have to absorb. I'm sure they are both exceptionally difficult but for different reasons.
EDIT: Oops, I was beaten to it

I can also confirm, in case it was in doubt, that Maths at Cambridge is much harder than Law at BPP (doing a second degree there currently)
