Changing course - Exeter universityWatch
Hello guys im currently finished with my exams for first year and will be transitioned to second year around septemebr/october. Im doing data science currently in exeter university but want to change my course from data science to data science and mathematics. I have gotten Distiction in IT, Distinction* in Applied Science and C in maths. Would i be suitable for data science and mathematics course and if so how do i change like cause i talked with my academic tutor and he said you can do it after you got results but i need to apply for student finance right now so what should i do ?
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.
so i should do student finance and then transfer my course as soon as possible and then update finance about it?
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.

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.
