    The best thing to do is contact the admissions tutor for a specific uni. From my own experience, maths tends be counted as a second science.

    Please tell me you're trolling.

    Maths is not a bloody science maths is maths.
    I think you’ll find many unis count mathematics as a second science when they request a 2 sciences to be taken to a level (check with the university though because some may not count it.) So get your facts straight before you post 😂

    My bad I thought you were asking if maths was a 'pure' science.

    Today I learned maths can be counted as a science

    In hindsight you were very clear I just made assumptions because I skim read it sorry!!!


    I think your best bet would be to email or ring them just in case. I know some universities count geography and psychology as a science but some don't so it depends.

    So I'm guessing the same thing would apply for maths.

    It depends on whether the uni has said "science" or "lab-based science". Best to check with them though.

    They will generally define what they count as a science A-Level but I don't think I've ever seen a case where they haven't accepted Maths as a science.

    Plenty of uni courses consider Maths as a "science" subject when applying with A-levels.

    If talking more generally, then the "STEM" phrase defines science and maths as separate. Which they are, but i'd say both of them have a pretty close relationship.
