I really love maths.I am doing earth sci but I did not choose it,I wanted to do B.sc(mathematics,with IT).I know very well that I can make in that course but because my cluster points can't allow me though because of other subjects.I got 65 points with maths A (plain).I wish if I could change,because my heart will open to glory because I have never accepted to be away from maths.Please help
