    Ok im predicted three A's in maths, economics and physics
    and i am applying to study economics bsc but still stuck on choosing my back up uni's

    it is out of -

    essex university: who require 320 points (AB from alevel)

    kent university: who require 320 points (BB from alevel) and do a year's work experience

    surrey: who require ABB and also do a years work experience

    which universities would be better in terms of job prospects (bearing in mind the years work experience and the reputation of each uni)

    also i dont think any of them require alevel maths or economics but kent say 'Economics grade B at A level where taken.'

    thanks ..

    Well by default you are likely to be more employable if you already have a years worth of experience though this difference is minimised with summer internships from the other unis. Bottom line is neither uni is really going to open/close any doors that the others wouldn't.
