    So after looking at the Gov.uk eligibilty page for student finance, I noticed that it does not have MMath listed as one of the options, would i still get funding?
    I am really worried about this, along with the fact that I sent off my UCAS yesterday and applied for MMath at Newcastle through partners, I dont know why I did this, I really feel like I shouldv'e applied for just the three year BSc Mathematics, rather than the 4 year MMath then swithched later if I really wanted to. Will applying for the 4 year MMath rather than the 3 year BSc reduce my chances of getting an offer?? Why am I only having these doubts immediately after I sent my application? I'm terrified and I don't know what to do, I feel so stupid.

    Enhanced undergraduate degrees like MEng, MSci and MMath are eligible for full undergraduate funding for the length of the course. Universities will almost always consider you for an offer for the BSc equivalent if you're unsuccessful in getting an offer/place on an MMath (but if your'e worried ring them up and ask if that happens for your choices).

    Finance wise it's better to start on a 4 year course and later switch down to 3 years than the other way around.

    The only issue might be if you start a BSc but want to switch up to an MMath AND have resat a year/restarted your course OR if you complete an MMath you would not be eligible for a postgraduate loan if you wanted to follow up with a MSc.
