I'm currently holding an offer to study Maths at Bristol (Durham was my first choice but not expecting an offer), and the concept isn't really exciting me.

Originally I was going to do a degree in history but after learning about how minimal jobs are, I decided to pursue maths instead, a subject I still like, but am not as passionate about.

When I applied I was so sure I was making the right choice but with taking Maths and FM A level, I feel like I spend all day every day doing maths and I'm wondering if that's the reason i feel so negative about it now - it's the pressure and doing so much of it.

Am I making the right choice? On a separate but related note, how easy would it be to change to a course like Maths and Philosophy which still gives me some of the debate of history and is a subject I love?

probs not that hard to change, email someone in the department or an admissions person?

Don't do a degree you don't feel excited about, it's gonna be such a drag if you're not kinda passionate about what you're studying and have an interest that makes you wanna actually do independent study on it

If you are still unsure, Aberystwyth University does a joint mathematics and history degree
