oversea student, study A-Level course and just take CIE test, got 2 A* of Math and Eco, and wait for FM and Physics test of A2. Wonder whether I should choose Mathematics & Statistics as major. Is anyone here share his or her own feeling about statistics or you can recommend other majors that you really like.

This is something only you can decide - and it will depend on the focus/content of the degree at each Uni.
Look at the individual curses pages closely, and read the descriptions of optional units to get an idea of what makes each course different.

Maths and Stats at York - https://www.york.ac.uk/study/undergr...cs-statistics/

Ok that makes more sense.

Well, statistics is much more mathematical at university. In particular, you should be quite comfortable with calculus and matrices. Generally Maths will have a more flexible structure than Maths & Statistics so if you are unsure I would just go for straight maths.
