I hope it's ok that I post here - I know this thread is old, but I wasn't quite sure if I should make a new one

I just had a question about studying secondary education at uni - I apologise in advance if none of this makes sense, I'm rather tired and I just don't know how uni and courses work in general...

My plans are to study at the University of Queensland, as they offer the double degrees that I am interested in (Bachelor of Science/Secondary Education & Bachelor of Mathematics/Secondary Education) - but the problem is, I don't know what double degree I want to do the most.

Here are my original plans (up until about now, as I am now second guessing everything).

I was going to put mathematics and education as my first preference and science and education as my second preference.

Assuming I was successful at receiving a place in my first preference I was going to study some courses from mathematical physics and pure mathematics within the mathematics degree. Within the education degree I was going to study all the usual courses and then have advanced mathematics and general mathematics as my two subjects that I specialise in. I looked at some example course structures, and it had advanced maths and general maths down as the two subjects you specialise in if you are doing a mathematics double degree... Is this a requirement or am I able to specialise in advanced maths and physics for example, instead of general maths? I was then going to hopefully do some summer courses to learn how to teach other subjects such as psych, bio or physics (I would really love to teach both mathematics and some sciences).

If I got my second preference and instead studied a bachelor of science, this is what I was going to do... I was planning to major in psychology and minor in biology within the science degree (Idk how majors and minors work tho) and then I was going to specialise in advanced mathematics and physics in the education degree. That way I should be able to teach psychology, biology, mathematics (at all levels) and physics - which is ideal.

I thought that I had made up my mind this year and I was 100% certain that I would do the mathematic and education double degree, but now I'm getting cold feet. Here are my thoughts:

I absolutely love mathematics - I just find it so interesting and I love a good challenge. I find so much satisfaction in completing page long equations, and enjoy spending my time studying it (however, it is much more enjoyable when I actually know what I'm doing - not so much when I haven't got a clue about what's going on). And I am super duper interested in some of the courses available within the mathematics degree. I love the look of mathematical physics and pure mathematics and would love to study them... The thing is.... maths isn't my strong point (it is my weakest subject - I'm studying methods and achieved an A- overall for the year - which I know isn't bad at all, but it's not amazing). I am 100% aware that how I am travelling in mathematics now is not a good indicator at how proficient I will be as a teacher (after all, even Eddie Woo was bad at maths in school). I know I will have to work HARD if I studied the mathematics double degree, and I guess I'm scared about some of the "What If?"s.. e.g. What if I'm never 100% confident in maths? What if I fail my students? What if I don't understand it enough to explain it to my students? What if I don't succeed at uni?... etc. etc. etc.. I get bad exam anxiety when it comes to mathematics, which is odd considering how much I love it.. and I guess I'm scared that it may get in my way at uni. But, anyways, I just think maths is beautiful, and I just long to understand it and all its intricate details.

The other thing is... I really LOVE psychology. It is my best 1/2 subject (95/100 for the year - damn, 1 point off of the A+ bracket

_{damn you data test}) and I think it is so so so so so interesting. So being able to study it at uni would be amazing - and I have no fears that I will be able to perform alright at university if I were to study it. Furthermore, if I take the bachelor of science pathway it will be easier for me to teach all of the subjects that I want to teach (I won't have to do any summer courses). BUT. The downside is that I won't be able to study the mathematical physics and pure mathematics courses that I think I would really enjoy

Lets also take a look at the ATARs required for each course. Last time I checked, I need to achieve an ATAR of 94 for the mathematics double degree, and an 87 for the science double degree.

Any advice or words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated
