Student finance is independent.
Just get on with applying for it and at the same time start to look into transferring if possible through internal means or go through UCAS if you want to transfer externally. Internally is easier. You can update student finance on the change of course if it happens.

Hi zulhaq345,

That is correct. You can apply for Student Finance without knowing which course/university you will be doing next academic year. You can easily change this at a later date. Hope this helps.

You'd need to ask the university; but as a first step, look at the prospectus information on Exeter's web site:

BSc Mathematics and Data Science - 2021 entry: https://www.exeter.ac.uk/undergradua...atasciencebsc/

BSc Data Science - 2021 entry: https://www.exeter.ac.uk/undergradua...ience/databsc/

The entry requirements for BSc Data Science are at least A-level grade B in Maths. The entry requirements for BSc Mathematics and Data Science include at least A-level grade A in Maths.

Obviously there might be a little bit of flexibility in who they admit, but the fact that Maths and Data Science requires an A and Data Science on its own only requires a B suggests that the maths will be harder in the former subject.

Looking in a bit more detail, it looks like the first year of the two course is identical -- so if you've done well in the maths components, you may be able to transfer directly into the second year of Maths and Data Science; that being so I suspect that your performance in year 1 of your existing course will be much more important that the exams you passed a year ago.

Hi zulaq345 - I recommend that you speak to your tutor and teachers about this as they will know you as a student and understand your ability and suitability for the course. The University tries to be as flexible as possible and understands that preferences often change after a year of study. Contact your teachers first and then, if they support your request, Admissions will sort out the admin side of things.
