    From what I learned at open days; your chances are exactly the same. Perhaps if they cannot offer you a place on the MMath they will offer you a BSc? I'm not 100% sure so anyone feel free to correct me.

    If you want to do MMath apply for MMath.

    They can always offer BSc instead but if you aim low it's more difficult to move to a longer course (applies to student finance as well - switching from a 4 yr course to a 3 yr course is less hassle than the other way around).

    From my experience with MChem and Bsc (which I imagine is similar) the chances are the same. With mine however the offer was one grade higher for MChem, and if you didn't fell just short you'd be offered a place on the BSc to prove yourself and you can then transfer to MChem if you meet criteria after years one and two.

    In my opinion there is no point doing the MMath at all.

    If you just want a generic grad job then a BSc will suffice, and if you want a job that requires further qualifications then do the BSc plus a proper MSc (and then a PhD if needed).
