    How bad at maths are we talking? I believe the mathematics in Economics won't go beyond A level and maybe just a bit more than GCSE maths - though it would mainly be statistical. I think city shouldn't be too maths based (except maybe financial mathematics?) - It comes down to exactly how decent is your maths ability.
    :eek: i think you'll find there is a reason cambridge asks for further maths when going into economics.



    you'll probably need a good understanding of things like this.

    That is just math speak for
    a function with averaged values being less greater then function with the x component being specific... (general)

    Decoding requires a math dictionary, not further math.

    1) Im not very good at maths, and didn't take it at A level

    2) I have an extreme passion for economics

    Armed with these two points, Will I struggle with economics at uni (London unis apart from UCL/LSE)?

    Help from anyone would be lifesaving !
    Tell me about your love for Economics. Convince me it is not just infatuation. i.e. convince me that it is based on a true representation of what economics is and not a false image.

    i.e. say what features of it you like and I may be able to re-direct you to your true calling. Or you may “win” and convince me that you are indeed an Economist

    i.e. given your facts 1) and 2)must likely explanation is that what you love is not what they teach and hence you should doing something else.

    i.e. what are you good at?
