    Thanks bro The dream is Oxford. I'm not too sure, I'm either going down the IB route or something like working for the Bank of England. What do you plan on doing yourself?

    Yeah hopefully, I guess it's all about the TSA now! Gonna really need to get my head around it. Yeah Economics can lead to many career options and I'm not too sure if I do want to go into IB tbh.

    I'd say it depends what kind of profession you are looking to go into. If you are unsure you should do economics and politics because you will then learn both subjects.
    Im on my 2nd draft believe me you need to get something down like a plan what to put where then keep making it better. Just look at examples online as well for inspiration hope it helps!
