    Hmm yes I agree. It would be easier to choose Bath over Warwick, although we both got rejected by them so perhaps we just don't like them any more

    I saw this post on another thread:

    "Assign a university to each side of the coin and flip it; while the coin is in mid-air you will realise which side you want the coin to land on, and that is where you truly want to go"

    Think I might have to try it...
    Using our game theory knowledge we can conclude that won't work; since flipping the coin isn't a credible enough threat to make you think about it deeply and make that snap decision

    How about the fact that Bath accommodation applications start on Monday and I won't get an ensuite bedroom if I don't decide soon?

    :lol: my friend suggested this also. Except it was more, one the coin has landed do you like the decision it has made? If not, you have your answer there.

    Gilt yields will affect the interest rates on all kinds of debt, their influence will depend on the term of the debt, associated risk and all kinds of other factors. They are basically one of the instruments that allows BoE interest rates to trickle through the market.
    Gilt yields are used to set all those things but How ?

    They aren't used to set them but they have an impact on them since the companies you are getting overdrafts with and mortgages with will buy and hold a lot of gilts so it influences the return they can get when yields change.

    When I say they are not used for setting them I meant to say they are not the only factor that determines rates on mortgages, overdrafts etc. Since each type of debt has different factors affecting it and different risks they require different pricing. Bond yields are a very important factor but not the only factor. Sorry for being confusing

    that's because its cambridge dont worry! Look at the units/options at NTU to see whether you like the sound of it.

    As the main focus of your degree is Business Management the Economics side of things will be negligible and you'll probably only do the side of economics which is more relevant to business (that said I don't know anything about your course or NTU)

    Economics is fun :love: (although I don't think you're going to get a neutral opinion on this thread)

    Hope that helps.

    Haha i love economics! i was going to do business management but since i did economics in A levels i fell deeply in love with it! so i did a joint degree

    Warwick. The thing I don't like about either of those universities is location so that makes it easier

    I wouldn't have thought there would be too much difference. Choose based on which course you would actually prefer to study for 3 years, not whether on is more "respected" than the other.

    Oh right, I just heard from a few people that employers from big firms tend to cut down on the amount of straight economics graduates they have.

    In terms of which one I would prefer to study, I'm really not that bothered and would happily study either, but would veer slightly to the econ+maths.

    Sounds like rubbish to me, and if they are cutting straight economics grads then studying it combined with maths probably won't make any difference. Straight economics always seems like the best one to go for as for all of the universities I have seen when it says Economics with >insert subject< all it does is remove all your optional modules and replace them with that subject. Whereas if you do straight economics you can opt to do whatever optional modules you want without constraint.

    Some days like that are completely useless though, like UCL's open day for example.

    I'm just going to see who'll be on the course next year and just get a feel for the general atmosphere. Doubt i'll find out something pivotal I didn't already know
