    If you didn't pick Maths for Alevel because you don't enjoy it, I suggest not doing economics at all, because its heavily maths-based - microeconomics, lots of graphs and curve readings, growth rates, GDP calculations, econometrics (statistics for economics). It is very very maths-based. You might not enjoy the course if you don't like maths.

    To answer your question, I think if you look for BA Economics, you should be better off. I think Lancaster doesn't require Maths?? (Check it).
    Sheffield offers both BSc and BA. So check the syllabus and choose the type of degree you will enjoy.

    But since you like essays, apply for Econ (BA)!

    I'm talking about serious economists. If you were, then you'd appreciate the integrity of maths.

    Well yeah an economist would probably love a bit of maths, but anything below degree level in economics doesn't give you enough mathematical based economics to link the two.
