Accounting and Finance or Maths with economics? URGENT :(Watch
I think I would enjoy either one to be honest but I'm worried that if I chose maths with economics instead then I would be lacking things to put on my personal statement because I haven't really done much extra for that because I never considered it as a degree until now.
I have done work experience at a small accounting firm, done 2 online courses about the basics of accounting and I'm reading 'The Finance Book' so I can include these for my accounting and finance personal statement if I do this as a degree.
For maths with economics, I can talk about how I've only participated in a maths challenge day which allowed me to apply maths to real life problems and that I have a level 3 maths algebra edexcel award. As I don't really have much time left until I send my application to UCAS, I was thinking about watching some TedTalks about maths/economics to help me see if I want to do this as a degree and use this on my personal statement.

What are your maths grades and which universities would you be considering? I'm not so convinced that personal statements are the key thing for maths - maybe different at Oxbridge. Have you looked at MORSE degrees?
However, if you are interested in Accounting and Finance, combined with good grades/ good uni, you can make anything work too - but your options could be more limited.
