The best question to ask is what sort of career routes are you interested in following afterwards?

Hello,I would suggest you go through the programme modules for each one.https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-st...ematics-bscOne is run by the Chemistry department and the other by the Natural Sciences department, both part of the MAPS faculty.Natural Sciences can offer a combination of Chemistry and Mathematics (and Statistics) but I would say the programme is broader and also includes specific NatSci modules such as Research skills and Scientific communication as well as a literature review.You will be able to study along with single science students with their specialised department (and not adaptations for students outside the department), which I consider an advantage (higher standards, but also more challenging!).The main difference between the two regarding Chemistry is thatif you chose a Chemistry stream (within Natural Sciences), you will not normally study all three branches (Physical, Inorganic and Organic), you will specialise in one and will also be able to take modules of a second one.Chemistry with Maths would be more like: All Chemistry and then Math modules (related to chemistry). You might be able to change to only Chemistry after your first year if you are finding the Mathematical part hard.It is your choice if you prefer a broader education, where you have to excel in two different sciences at the same standard as single science students, or you rather more specialisation and therefore more overlap between modules.I hope this helps (at least a little)!
