Go for it!  But realise that its not going to be easy and things take time and there are LOTS of sacrifices to make. Also make sure you learn from your mistakes - because you will make them. It is really only a mistake if you don't learn from it.

Realist?
Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Summary... header image

Mathematics is the language for the logical study of the structure of our world. It has developed from counting, calculating and measurement through the use of abstraction and logical reasoning.

Mathematical Studies underpin many other disciplines. Applied Mathematics is concerned with the development and use of mathematical models to investigate problems that arise in such areas as biology, engineering, physics and the social sciences.

As part of an Arts degree, this subject is one of three subjects you choose in first year. In second and third year you continue with two of the subjects taken in First Arts. It may be possible to take an extra year studying abroad.

Notes:
Restricted Entry Subjects: students should note that they may choose only ONE from the  following traditional Arts subjects: Beginners’ German, Léann an Aistriúcháin, Legal Studies,  Information Technology, Mathematics and Psychology. Each of the above subjects has restrictions on entry to Second Arts based upon performance in First Arts.

Therefore, successful completion of the subject in First Arts may not guarantee progression to Second Arts in that subject. For this reason, the College does not permit any student to register for more than ONE restricted entry subject.

Students must achieve 45% in Mathematics in first year to proceed to Mathematical Studies in second year. Students must achieve 60% and pass the module MA186 in Mathematics to proceed to second year Mathematics.
