I LOVE applying maths to different situations (e.g. a pendulum) or even something like a van (e.g. what's the speed of the van) - very basic example. It could be any object. I know that a physics degree would be the most obvious, but is there another degree that's more suitable to my passion?

i think a secured psychiatric hospital is the best place for you...

Hey I was exactly the same as you don’t make the same mistake I made and choose physics because mechanics and physics are not the same....What you’d be better off doing is something like
Mathematical physics
Theoretical physics
Engineering computation
Computer science
Maths

Like this is off the top of my head but basically what u want us a mathematical/engineering degree please don’t just do physics 😅

Applied mathematics is a good choice, with plenty of finance and physics modules. I also loved mechanics, pure physics would also be good, but its one of the more difficult degrees!

My background: I did A level maths (Mech 1 + Stats 1). Mech 1 was my favourite module in all of A levels and I was the among the best students in it.

Any engineering that isn't chemical or electronic would be best.

I agree with this and wish I did it tbh.

Me too. I study computer engineering however it definitely seems applied mathematics would have given me more in depth knowledge and confidence to do what I really want, that said, control engineering and signals and systems are a good dose of applied math too.
