Joint honours undergrad, economics masters?

    Hello, I have recently graduated with a high 2:1 (66) in Economics and Politics from the University of Nottingham. I achieved high grades in second year micro (77) and macro (68). I have however not completed any pure mathematics/statistics modules since first year. Given that it was first year my results in those modules were far from impressive. I have also completed a dissertation, although this was not in the Economics department, it was based around regression analysis.

    I am currently researching masters for next year and I am particularly interested in studying an msc in economics, development economics or energy economics. I was wondering how much of a disadvantage I would be at in the admissions process having only studied a joint honours at undergrad. Thank you!

    P.S if anyone is aware of any masters degree that utilise economics a lot but have less stringent mathematical requirements please let me know. Thanks again for any help!
