## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I have begun looking at universities and possible courses ( i live in the uk if that is relevent), and i have always wanted to do physics at uni. The problem is I cant decide if I want to do Physics by itself or Physics and Maths as a degree.

I think the reason is that i am not sure how "mathematical" ordinary physics courses are, and I want to make sure I have a really solid understanding of Maths.

So is there any point in sacrificing much of the physics I could be learning in order to have a better knowledge of the mathematics? Or is the maths taught in Single physics enough to get me through most careers which rely heavily on physics? ( If I were able to I would love to go into research)
