    Having looked into future careers this is what I want to do!

    I know it is hard to get into and I'm going to be applying for Financial Mathematics for next year but now I have seen degrees in Actuarial Science - what is better to go for? Is it worth me applying for say Financial Mathematics at Leicester, Newcastle or Sheffield and Nottingham Trent (insurance) and Actuarial Sciences at 2 others.

    My personal statement makes it clear that this is the career field I would like to go into.

    You're far better having a pure maths degree from a top uni than an applied one from a less respected uni
