    Anyone who's doing AQA Economics. For Unit 3, do we have to draw a diagram for the 10 mark question in the data response? My teacher sometimes contradicts herself in what she says, so I'm a little cautious on using some of the information she's given me.

    I'd take Surrey, but if you prefer RH then go for it.

    I know guys that discussing this issue is not related to UCAS economics, but I have a doubt which i would like all Econ students to be clear. My cousin, told me that BA in Economics is truly a worthless degree, because employment prospects of such students are low. Instead he said that Economics students who have science background will have better chance in the employment prospects (i.e. undergrad in science and MA in Economics) He told me that how many Stanford students who did BA in Economics are sill unemployed, are suffering as they do not have any science background. He told me to do undergrad in Law/Sci and then do MA for Economics. I already got offers from 2 univs, and I am still confused. Anyone knows whether the students who do BA in Economics is employed?

    Numerical/Analytical skills which are more predominant in BSc's are very sought after by many city employers but I don't think a BA Economics degree will not put you in bad steed. It still is, on the whole a pretty numerical degree and if people aren't getting a job because they have a BA in Economics instead of a BSc, then I feel sorry for people doing Geography/History. They must all be tramps if your theory is correct.

    You can receive two offers from the same university if your courses are from two different departments, am I right? Received a offer from UCL for Economics and Business and waiting to hear for straight Economics ( the two courses are from separate, different departments )
    Thanks in advance

    Depends on the uni, email they to find out. LSE, for example, would reject you for the other course if they've already made you an offer.

    I contacted them off another persons email to hide the fact I applied to Econ and Business aswell, they forwarded my enquiry to admissions and they haven't replied since.
    If it's from two different departments I don't see why they would reject for the other course. Feeling really worried though UCL is my favourite university...

    It's fine as long as the courses are managed by different departments.

    Call to make sure but I'm 99% sure with UCL its allowed. I asked the stats department if you could apply there and at Econ. They said definitely as its handled seperately.

    Then again stats and econ are in different faculties as well as department. Business and econ may not be, that may play a part but I doubt it.
