    But the accounting and finance degree gives you exemptions, surely that's more advantageous and practical?
    Yes true it's an advantage. If you're certain you want to do accountancy you should pick it but with maths your options are more open say if later you change your mind. Also personally I think I'd find an accountancy degree quite boring.

    Is it even necessary to study a finance related degree? I have heard a lot of people managed to get a job at the Big 4 with unrelated degrees such as any of the Sciences, History, Music, Philosophy etc. I think the experience you have is much more important than the degree you have, so you might as well just study something you will enjoy.
