    I've got an offer to study chemistry at warwick but realised that my interests lie in the finance sector. Would reapplying for a more mathematical based degree be a better approach for the future.

    As you have got an offer from warwick you could stick with chemistry tbh. You will still pretty much the same chance as a economics or maths student for breaking into finance or IB. You will just have a bit more explaining to do.

    You have an offer from a target uni, the degree you do is completely besides the point. I know and speak to plenty of traders with Chem degrees.

    chemistry degrees are boring and difficult, make sure you enjoy it or else you will be making your life unnecessarily difficult

    Speaking from experience? Tbh nothing has really amazed me in alevel chemistry but the practicals are quiet interesting. What do you think of chem eng as an alternative due to better prospects?

    It's not 'better', it just means you can apply for Chem Eng jobs too.
