    hehe, surviving just. change to economics when you get there. still plenty of dead-easy A level style maths involved in that.

    I'm considering the switch, though not at all very seriously. I will make up my mind after year 1 of the degree. Thanks for giving me a greater insight into undergrad Maths study, no-one has yet given me a clearer or more honest picture...

    I'm sorry, but... WHO CARES?!?!?!

    I got an A in maths AS, not a very high A, but all that matters is that it was an A! (I also got a D in further maths...!)

    Don't think I could cope with doing nothing but maths at uni. Im doing engineering.

    You had to ask didn't you.

    Straight As in all twelve modules, full marks in Pure1, Pure3, Pure5, Stats1, Stats2, Mechanics1, Decision1.

    Happy now? I hate talking about exam marks. So what you got an A in something - do you want a medal? Come back when you've completely sussed Galois theory, then I'll be impressed. And yeah, you're right, "u suk at English".

    I've heard Galois theory is a bit solid.

    Galois theory is a very big subject, and until you are quite immersed in mathematical study in a way which is unusual unless studying for a degree in maths, it can seem quite pointless. I really have no idea what it is about, because I'm only in the first year.

    where are you studying Bigcnee?

    I love maths, but some parts more than others. Stats is pretty **** to be quite honest. Although the binomial distribution is pretty funny.

    Oh yeah and don't tell anybody you do maths at uni because you will forever be shunned.

    I'm studying at Bath. The course is one of four that still offers the traditional Maths degree (with Cambridge, St Andrews, and one other!). I'm really enjoying it and learning so much every day. Some work is much easier than other work, but mainly due to the fact that i ahve convered it before. At Bath Maths is one of the biggest depts. (197 in our year) so we don't get shunned. We do the shunning!

    That is true, but who knows, he may be a troll who is just trying to harass the math people out there.
    His literacy skills do not seem sufficient either.
