    hi guys, I was wondering if anyone could help me with a course im intending to take. I've been looking at the 'Geography with Economics' course at LSE, as it would potentially be an easier course to get into, and I do have some interest in geography. however id much prefer to have geography as a 'back up' in case economics doesnt work out for me, but this course is mainly geography. I would at first be looking for an economics related job, probably investment banking, but how much of a disadvantage would i be due to my economics related degree being inferior to the geography part?
    I've been reading many many threads and everyone seems to conclude that UCL is worse for actual career prospects than LSE, but would a pure economics course at USC likely be preferred over this geography with economics course at LSE?
    (also id thought id throw in if anyone knew, what are the minimum gcse requirements for economics at oxford?)

    Won't make a huge difference, but i'd go for straight Economics in this case.

    Oxford doesn't provide economics as a single course.

    I'd say Geography with economics at LSE over straight economics at UCL.
