    If you need to take your socks off to count to 12 then yes, very.

    It depends on you, economics is a difficult and well respected degree.

    Have a read through this, it should answer of the most of your questions but if there is anything else just ask.

    It is a good degree and certainly worth doing. Employers value economics graduates due to the way an economist thinks and the toolkit you will have on graduating.

    Is it difficult? Within reason, yes. But this is subjective and depends entirely on the person.
