I relatively enjoy Chemistry however i've done some research and I reckon a Chemical Engineering degree would be more useful for my personal situation.

However the only thing stopping me from doing Chemical Engineering is that I reckon there is too much maths in that degree (majority maths even.) I done Chemistry and Maths A Levels and enjoyed Chemistry but hated the **** out of maths. (I had an amazing teacher for Chemistry and terrible teacher for Maths but i don't solely blame the teachers.)

Well my question is, is there A LOT of maths in chemical engineering? or is it balanced between the chemistry and maths? I don't want to be miserable for 3 years basically doing a level maths which i hated during a levels.

you should be able to get the individual module lists to compare the two degrees

Engineering at university will contain a lot of maths. It's often said that there is very little chemistry in a chemical engineering degree.

Are you actively considered a career in engineering?

honestly if there’s very little chemistry i won’t even consider it, there is a lot of good job opportunities in chemical engineering that you don’t get in chemistry so i was just keeping my options open if you will.

If it's chemistry you're interested in then a chemistry degree is a better fit.
