Hi,
Grade requirements for Engineering or Computing/Technology are mostly lower or same as compared to Maths or Physics, although the required A-Level subjects are (almost) the same.

Is it not that Engineering or Computing/Technology are better career choices than Maths or Physics?

Are there jobs for fresh graduates in Maths or Physics (after completion of undergraduate courses)? I think minimum post-graduation and even a PhD is needed to get a good job with Maths or Physics degree.

Thank you.

Depends what u want to do, if u want to become a physicist as a career, you have to do a PhD because almost all the jobs are research positions at Universities.
But there are plenty of jobs available for grads w maths/physics degrees. Accounting, finance, data scientist, analyst, many more, + all generic grad schemes (of course these jobs are also available to engineering grads as there open to almost any STEM graduate).

There are specialized grad schemes for engineering and Computer scientists, but if u do a BSc in maths/physics u can always do an MSc in engineering/CompSci later down the road if u want to.

Just pick what degree u really want to do, nothing is a closed book at the bachelors level unless u want it to be..

I'm not convinced that's true, what's your source for that?

More importantly do you want to be an engineer, or research scientist, or...?

Pick a course you actually want to study.
