    Hi i am torn between a bsc economics or a joint honours bsc degree in maths and economics (both in leeds.) Which would be best for msc finance (im guessing the latter, but I have no idea.)
    In advance thanks

    It depends on the modules you'll be taking in the MSc. I take a stats module which is extremely difficult for someone without a Maths background (like me), though an A-level may be sufficient.

    I study MSc Accounting & Financial Management, which is a bit different, but I share certain modules like corporate finance. The maths isn't extremely difficult and I would say a grounding in Economics is helpful, but not majorly important (though it will depend on your chosen course).

    I'd take whichever one you find more interesting to be honest. If you want to study Maths, take Econ&Maths. If you don't, take pure Econ :p:

    It was just that I wanted to do that exact same course but I am hoping for the York one but I am concerned that they won't accept me due to my degree of being straight economics.

    Simply choose the course you would prefer to do at undergraduate-level. They should both adequately prepare for your chosen postgraduate course.

    Do what you want at UG, then the same at PG. Someone will have you
