    Computer Science because I want to do Economics and therefore you are technically competition.

    Economics is great. Who needs computers anyway?

    Compsci won't get you pussy
    Economics will
    Judging that you determine whether someone get pussy by the subject they choose, I can clearly see you get none for yourself

    Was in the exact same position as you last year, and I actually changed due to year 13 economics, it was just plain boring, whereas maths was much more fun.

    My best advice would go to taster lectures, as I live in london there were lots and the economics ones for boring for me whereas the compsci ones were interesting.

    The only people doing compsci are the ones too awkward to study economics and do finance jobs
    To awkward? There is more group work and communication required in a CS degree than economics, in economics you just read out a text book in the library in silence .

    economics is only worthwhile at a top university. very very few students from ex-polys go into high finance or consulting.
    CS has high % of students going into professional jobs at almost all universities, even ex-polys. most go into software engineering. if you're an exceptional programmer u can earn £70000+ at 30. even people from ex-poly's get hired to work at big tech companies like google, facebook, amazon, microsoft etc.
    This is very misleading lmfao, i know a good 5-6 people from De Montfort and a few from Leicester Uni as well who did BA Economics degrees and are comfortably on 27-29k first job starting salaries in high finance roles, which will increase a lot by the second year in top places like Disney and IBM. So it must be far from 'very very few' students if i know 7-8 personally lol.

    People placing far to much emphasis on a uni when in reality it'll be the poor people skills in interviews that let them down, not a uni.

    So OP, don't choose not to study economics just because it's not at at an elite uni because outside of the top 15, there are 68 other unis that do economics, and i'm pretty sure the grads do just fine if you get a first or 2:1, work on interview skills and have extra circulars.
    I would understand if you're talking about Law and give this message, but in terms of economics grads do just fine
