    I've applied for maths at: Leeds, Birmingham, Warwick, Nottingham and Exeter. Leeds is my favourite with Birmingham close behind.
    I was just wondering (for people who do maths at University, especially if Leeds or Birmingham) what do you think of the course? Is it anything like A Level, or is it completely different? What would you say are the pros and cons?
    I know it's a little late to be asking... but anything would be helpful, thanks!

    I don't go to any of these uni (though I applied to one of them, and the course structure of my uni is almost identical to Leeds and Birmingham) but as a Maths student I can assure you that uni level Maths is NOTHING like A-level at any uni regardless of entry requirements. If it was, then it'd be a waste of £9k a year to learn.

    It is a difficult degree and will require you to work hard. The courses will start off easy and with A-level content to ensure everyone is at the same level (since some people have not done Further Maths or particular modules) but then the difficulty will increase. I'm not trying to discourage you, but do not start uni thinking that the first year will be like A-level (since it'll make things difficult and you'll start to slack off and fall behind when introduced to easy stuff).

    I've got mates at different uni's studying maths. It's definitely a step up, but ur eased into it. If you're not studying fm, it'd be best to cover some of it during the summer holidays. Maths at Warwick is defo the best out of those options but they're all very well regarded uni's.
