    Ok so maths is my fav subject and I love it. I want to do it at degree level but I don't know if I will be able to handle it because I DONT take further maths alevel. I do computer science and geography. Im not applying to top russel group unis so I don't think the course will be as demanding (I'm prob gonna apply to Queen Mary, Royal Holloway, Sussex, maybe Brighton and Surrey).

    Please does anyone have any advice or is doing a maths degree without further maths alevel???

    ALL help appreciated

    Also should I combine Maths with something like accounting and finance/statistics to level out the maths

    Whilst it would potentially be easier for you to grasp things if you had studied further maths, I'm sure if you worked hard you'd cope just fine. First year is great in the fact that they'll hopefully get everyone up to scratch and ensure you know the basic principles. If a university does not require further maths, then I don't see why it'd be too difficult for you to handle, if it was, they'd want you to have it. If you think it would help or if you have time, you could try looking at some aspects of further maths over the summer to brush up on your knowledge!

    I can't go into any detail as I didn't study maths, but I think with dedication and determination, you would be fine

    i initially wanted to do maths at uni but didnt have further maths either. so i thought i'd apply for something that uses maths. would that be something you're interested in too? courses that revolve around maths like certain engineering branches and computer science isn't just pure maths, so it has a nice balance for those who believe that maths at uni will be too intense.
