Alright, serious question. I've heard that Chemical Engineering is a **** hard degree and basically you struggle to have a social life if you study it at university. I'm considering doing it next year, but can someone tell me, how hard is it? and be honest. Because although I'm relatively good at maths, I'm not really sure if I enjoy it.

I don't think it's the math that makes ChemE hard. It's the **** ton of high level chemistry courses.

But from what I've heard and read there's very little chemistry involved, like 20% is chemistry and the rest if maths and physics?

It's mostly plant design for processes. Chemical engineers end up being more like managers, designing the overall idea and then designating to the mechanical/civil/electrical teams.

Very lucrative tbh but not as hands on.

I know I've heard that also. I'm deciding between that and Chemistry. I enjoy chemistry a lot but I have heard that the employment prospects are very poor after graduation, whereas with chemical engineering it is almost a guaranteed job.

If you go with chemistry you'll most likely end up staying in Academia.
Chemical engineering opens up a lot more prospects, including the standard engineering soul-sell of going into banking on a huuuuuge salary

Oh the choices. Do I go for the money, or for what I truly enjoy doing?
