I was wondering... should LJMU be kept within the table since they do not offer a straight economics course? Aston were removed due to this, and LJMU in the same fashion only offer a JH Business and Economics course.
Or was Aston more removed due to the fact they're not listed in the traditional league tables whereas LJMU is?
JMU are now removed as they do not offer straight economics.

Old Entry was:

This is something to consider for either the 2009 edition, or the 2010 edition, of the TAELT.

Most, if not all, Scottish universities offer entry requirements for entry into both the first and the second year (since their degrees are one year longer than traditional English/Welsh/N.Irish degrees). It might be an idea to offer details in regards to both, since while one cannot enter into the second year of an English university from A-Levels, they can do so with a Scottish university.

Heriot-Watt:
1st year - BCC
2nd year - BBB (in relevant subjects)

Stirling:
1st year - BCC
2nd year - BBB (including A-Level Economics)

Dundee:
1st year - CCC
2nd year - BBB

Abderdeen:
1st year - CCC (or AABB at AS-Level)
2nd year - BCC

While I am sure it is possible to do so from other Scottish universities, I've been unable to find the information easily on their websites.

I also can't find any details on 2nd year entry for econ at top Scotiish unis such as Edinbrugh and St Andrews

Edinburgh 2010

UCAS Couse Search 2010 states the following A-level requirements
"Mathematics at grade B. If Mathematics is unavailable at grade B then AS Mathematics at A required."

Edinburgh website confirms that A-level Maths is strongly preferred.

Cardiff 2010

UCAS Course Search has the A-level requirements as AAB/ABB

Whilst the uni website has ABB only:
http://coursefinder.cardiff.ac.uk/un...detail/23.html

But they both agree on need for B grade at A-level Maths.
