I'm currently filling in my ucas form and for one of my choices I'm applying to Heriott Watt but its giving the option for G100 or G101. I'm confused as to which one it is as it says 4ft hon or 5FT IMD

unless I'm sadly mistaken
G101 is the course code for the MMath integrated masters degree https://www.hw.ac.uk/uk/study/underg...tics-mmath.htm
G100 is the course code for the BSc (hons) Mathematics degree https://www.hw.ac.uk/uk/study/underg...matics-bsc.htm

So as a 6th year going into uni I would be choosing hons right?

You could choose either one you preferred. The integrated Masters programme is also an undergraduate course, (you would finish with a single Masters degree if you completed it).

admit-one is correct, you could choose either... but choosing both would usually be a waste of a UCAS choice.

quite often a uni running an integrated masters and a BSc in the same subject will offer places on the BSc to candidates who narrowly missed an offer on the masters
OTOH there's often a pathway onto the masters from BSc if you're performing well.... and if you're on the Masters but not enjoying it as much as you thought you can change down to the BSc to save yourself the extra year.

I don't know what the exact situation is at HW so probably drop them an email / phonecall

ignore the (Hons) part. That's not important in this case.

Bachelor's degrees, like BSc or BEng or BA, are 3 year degrees. An integrated Master's degree is a 4-year degree that goes up to master's level and is often offered for sciences and engineering - so you'd graduate with a MSci or MEng (or any of the many other Ms). It's a higher-level qualification than a bachelor's degree. The trade-off is that you're spending an extra year in uni. However you could do BSc and then a postgraduate master's degree separately afterwards - that would be an MSc.
