    Hi,
    I'm considering a path in finance, would these academic routes be suitable for an IBer?

    I'm thinking of these joint degrees:

    Southampton- Politics and Economics
    Lancaster - PPE or Politics and Economics
    Nottingham - Politics
    York - Economics and Politics
    Bristol - Politics
    Leeds- Politics and Economics
    Birmingham - Politics and Economics

    I'm taking Economics, Politics and Philosophy at A-Level (probably, haven't decided yet, however).

    I received AABC at AS-Level (A's in Economics and Politics, B in Philosophy and C in Maths). I'm plannign on re-sitting a Maths unit to get a B (hopefully).

    I understand these degrees aren't the most relevant degrees.

    Well I'm a bit unsure, I'd like to work in finance, no particular role in mind however (perhaps some form of accountancy, if there is an IB equivalent?).

    It depends PPE at Oxford no problem. Politics/Economics joint honours at UCL, LSE and Warwick is also likely to be strong enough. Once you go lower down the table, it gets harder, i.e Politics and Economics from Southampton, and well..it'll be a struggle.
