How much Algebra is in the 1st year module "MATH40012 - Calculus, Algebra and Analysis for JMC" at Imperial? Does it dig straight into groups/rings/fields and lagrange/fermat/euler's theorem and stuff like that? I noticed JMC doesn't focus much on abstract algebra at all

You can take Algebra 2 & 3 plus galois theory in third year and Algebra 4 plus commutative algebra in fourth year. There's also a range of options in algebraic geometry, topology, and number theory etc, available across the final two years. Essentially you can take as much algebra as a single honours maths student, subject to degree regulations and timetabling, just in a slightly different schedule to account for the computing side of the course.

I don't know about the content of that particular module as I can't find a module content page for it. I'd be surprised if any maths courses teach much if any ring theory in the first year of a maths degree. I imagine you'll cover groups and possibly be introduced to fields (in relation to vector spaces). You could always contact Imperial to enquire about it directly.
