    Im in year 12 thinking about uni options and currently want to do something with maths and biology, i found a two relevant courses, because apparently its a new and small course that leeds and southampton both do
    Is it wise to do? Would it be frowned upon compared to a straight degree in one subject by emplyers? What can you actually do with it? Is it wise to choose such a small course, and how do i pick 5 ucas options if only 2 places do it
    Could really use some advice

    Employers wont view it any differently but you wont have as many optional modules to take for each side

    how do you mean small? if you mean as in class size then the course itself might be small but I know at leeds, you are taught along side other courses (straight maths, comp sci with maths, theoretical physics etc) for the maths modules so your lectures wont be small, I assume the biology side is the same

    As for the ucas thing you could apply to other unis for straight maths/bio courses or natural sciences courses

    Smalls the wrong word, i mean that its a small course in the sense that not many uni's do it

    I suppose its because not too many people want to do it and the ones that do could also just apply for natural sciences
