Does anyone actually find it strange that so many people are off to study economics? I know I do because I happen to be the only person off to do straight economics this year from my sixth form college. More people off to do other degrees, largely medicine.

thats weird, i know that economics is the most popular course in the uk, loadsa people are doing it in my year anyways for uni, and this kinda explains why grades requirements for economics are rising so fast e.g. york used to be be bbb just 2-3 years ago now its aab. I think its because people know that economics give you a good future with high earnings etc...and it being interesting is a bonus (or the other way round)

I'd say on the open days it was more evenly split. Maybe it's also because my school's predominantly english, a lot of british born indians/chinese/pakis etc seem to do economics.
