    thanks for that. in answer to ur question, i want to do straight economics as i think that gives you more job prospects and is more respected.
    I am looking at these unis atm,
    Manchester
    Birmingham
    York
    Sheffield
    Newcastle
    Leeds
    What do u think of them?
    Also ive been lookin at the times online tables and can i really trust them. They tel me things that even i know cant be true! lol thanks
    They're all solid universities, though I'd say York and Birmingham, then Manchester, and then the rest.

    The BSc is more quantitative, and is 'targeted' to those who want to become economists, though that said, you'd ideally need a MSc or PhD to become one, and really the BSc gives a lot of skills that are helpful in other careers as well.

    Though, again that said, the BA at Manchester is very flexible and you can choose the same course content as the BSc but it simply means no options are compulsory.
