Warwick vs UCL (maths/stats)

Hey guys,
I have received offers from both Warwick (maths and stats), and UCL (mathematics and statistical science).
Which 1 should I pick and please may I have reasons as to why?

One of the biggest questions to ask yourself is if you want to be studying in London or on a campus like Warwick, since that's probably the biggest difference.

From what i can see in first year at least, the courses are fairly similar. I don't think you would really go wrong with either one tbh.

I'm currently at Warwick doing maths so if you have any questions about it specifically feel free to ask.
Warwick has a considerably stronger maths department than UCL by most accounts. It's broadly on par with with Oxbridge/Imperial - UCL would probably be at best in a distant third category after those and then Bristol and maybe a couple of others.

That said for Warwick you will probably need to be taking STEP presumably, which can be a challenge. So consider that factor. Bear in mind though you can always have UCL be your insurance with Warwick as your firm, in case you miss the STEP condition for Warwick but get the grades :smile:

Assuming they take further maths they wont be required to take step, the standard entry requirements is 2A* in both maths and fm and A in the 3rd. You can get it reduced to 1 A* if you achieve one of the following STEP (grade 2) ,TMUA (score 6.5) , MAT (score 55).

I’m also the same although for ucl it’s just statistics.I’ve always wanted to go to a London uni like ucl cus of the environment but now I’m also struggling to pick since Warwick is better for maths.When you choose please reply to the msg and tell which one you picked
