    Ah, well! All's well that ends well, hopefully it'll end well

    I remember doing a markscheme unofficially for an edexcel paper...

    :facepalm: I made some silly mistakes, still would have had.an A* but as an m/s I had to be 100% right.
    It's a nice feeling when someone asks for help and despite not having gone to any lessons, you still get it done correctly.

    I think silly mistakes in the other questions also contributed to my A grade. I have a new strategy for time management in approaching the exams now, and its got me three consecutive A*s in my Science exams so I'm hopeful it'll go well.

    Why not Cambridge Economics? That would be perfectly fine for hedge/quant developer fund jobs.
    Mathematics is more versatile and I would probably find it more interesting. Hedge Funds, Quant Funds, Prop Trading Shops, Bulge Bracket Banks etc. will all love a mathematics degree, whilst Economics is a little less appreciated (virtually all of the tenants living above my parent's shop study Econ, so it's easy to get the feeling it's oversubscribed to be truly prestigious ).

    Hmm yh prestige is one thing but its a shame that the emphasis over university degrees are now solely on job prospects to be honest. Anyhow, Maths or economics is fine I think, although economics at a prestigious university live Cambridge would obviously stand out. I suppose for hedge/quant developers, the quantitative aspects are more significant then economic theory though.

    Not doing Maths purely because it's better for job prospects. Like I said, I'd be more interested in Mathematics than Economics now. I'm specifically interested in Micro and Macro Economics, Econometrics, Financial Economics and Game Theory but most Econ courses require you to learn everything else as well. I wouldn't mind learning everything else in Mathematics.
