I think its too late in the year to switch degrees (and I think i do still want to study some physics, just in a more mathematically rigorous way) and its probably very unlikely i'd be allowed to take any modules from the maths department in place of some optional physics ones. This leaves me at a bit of a loss as to what I should do, especially since a lot of the masters courses I've looked at for mathematical/theoretical physics require maths undergrad or physics with 'a substantial maths component'. There's also the concern that if I did manage to get accepted onto one of these masters courses i'd be significantly behind mathematically compared to others. I suppose I could self teach some maths such as real analysis, but I'm not sure how realistic this is to do alongside my current studies, plus id have no proof that I had successfully learnt such things since I wouldn't have sat exams related to it.

Does anyone have any advice?
