    I'm only in my first year so I've just been here a month, but I'm loving it! I got 8A*s and 3As at GCSE and 4As (including general studies so 3 really :p: ). At the moment I'm on the 3 year course but I'm going to switch to do the placement year. Any more questions, feel free to ask

    You want a safety Uni. This would not be Edinburgh (too competitive) but you can do better than City or RH. So have an AAB.2.1 uni as a safety (of which Birmingham is one).
    Thanks... Paul by the way, i developed my interest in economics because I was reading economic history books (about already developed ideas or even K r u g m a n he also wrote about economic history) and studied economic issues in history gcse and a level therefore its ok to have my ps written in such style? because thats how i really developed my interest. But in your thread about PS you suggest not to sound like historian...but isnt economic history part of economics anyway? I mean at this level when I havent studied any complicated mathematical and political models you know?
    I give my thoughts and reactions to old ideas and about how they influenced society and how i developed interest in economics from them. I mostly comment on things I read... ( mostly macroeconomics)

    what do you think?

    what do you think?
    i)You make a strong case.
    ii)But still think it would be good to engage with the non-historical state of modern economics.
    iii)Krugman would be good.
    iv)Giving a quality response to one book would be better than a shallow response to a number of books. i.e. show an economic response to one book and readers will see your quality and believe that you can do the same with other books as well. Whilst if you do a bit on a number of sources you loose the depth and risk not sounding like an economist.
