    Ofcourse Maths degree is never going to be easy!But if you enjoy Maths, and like to be challenged then you could do it.
    Difficulty of the course depends on the university as well e.g. Maths at places like Oxbridge and impeial is going to be more challenging than other unis.
    If you enjoy maths but ur not so brilliant at it, then doing a joint Honours (e.g Maths and computing) would be better because you only be doing 1 and 0.5 yrs of a maths degree.
    When they say Maths with computing it means 75:25
    When they say Maths and computing it means 50:50

    I thought that I'll ask here rather than creating a new thread so;

    Do you think getting excepted into Maths and Economics is possible if my PS is based around Economics? (at places such as Notts, Edinburgh and Leeds)

    That shouldn't be a problem. I'm doing MORSE at Warwick in September, but my personal statement was written for Economics degrees! Not even sure the admissions tutors had read my personal statement, as they didn't seem to realise I'd applied for Economics at my interview.
