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)
Maybe its my school, its a girl's school but sicence is really popular in my year (but not in the year below). I think almost everyone does one natural science or maths.
ahh that explains it, way more boys do economics than girls. In my class there are only 2 girls doing economics weird
