The deadline is in one week and I still don't know what course to apply for; I'm torn between Maths and Chemistry. I am currently taking a semi gap year where I'll be retaking some of my failed A2 exams in June in the hopes I can get higher A level grades. Now, grade wise, I'm stronger in Maths but I know for a fact that I will enjoy doing Chemistry a lot more. I'm not in a position to apply for both at the moment considering I haven't actually written out a new personal statement yet (I still have a PS for Biochemistry which I wrote out last year which I might be able to modify. It would make sense for me to take another gap year since that would then give me more time to decide which one I should actually go for but I also know that I will most likely go insane - a year is a very long time to wait to go to University. Sorry if this doesn't make much sense, I'm tired and I'm panicking.
I need urgent advice regarding UCAS and applying to University. Watch

Joint honours Maths and Chemistry?
"Using the power of advanced maths to understand the diversity and complexity of the chemical world is what really drives our students on our Chemistry and Mathematics joint honours degrees.
In mathematics you will develop your skills in core subject areas such as linear algebra and calculus and combine these with studies of chemistry understand how and why molecules react and the methods that are employed to study them.
As you move through the programme you have the opportunity to specialise in a range of topics in both parts of your course and vary the split between the two components to study the topics that interest you the most.
This BSc course runs over three years. As well as studying the subjects in great depth you can also explore how chemistry and maths interact with other disciplines, with industry, with wider society and internationally throughout your programme."

Any one of these three allows for the combining of chemistry and maths.

You need to think about what your ultimate career goal is and go for the most relevant course.
