    I went today and surprised myself, I actually really liked it!

    It was weird coming from a big city to a secluded campus but it was much nicer than I expected it to be. PPE (and Economics for that matter) seem really good too.

    I went and I liked everything about the course and department, but I wasn't a big fan of the location of the campus and seeming lack of social life there...

    On the whole I liked it, but I don't think I'll apply just because I don't want to apply to too many highly competitive universities and I already prefer Cambridge and Durham

    Does it have maths at all? :confused: i'm pretty sure it's a BA with no maths, which puts me off applying there.

    I'm looking at Warwick, UCL, Bristol, Bath, York, Nottigham. There's 6 there but I was hoping to attend open days to get a better idea but I've missed all of the summer ones since I can't drive or have someone drive me. They're too far to travel by myself.

    And bristol + bath's September open days clash. Great position I've put myself in. :mad:

    Pretty sure there is Maths involved (could be less than others such as Warwick though).

    Offers for York are AAA but AAB if Maths A-Level offered and Bath is A*AA. Both great in my opinion. York looks like a nice, small town Uni while Bath I've heard has a great placement year.

    Maybe there is but looking at the course content there isn't a single quantive module unless I'm missing it.
    But then again I think I read somewhere that Durham what an A-Level in maths for there economics degrees.

    I was also at the Warwick open day today. I take it some of you went to the economics talk too? Didn't the professor ramble on a bit haha.
    But anyway I really liked the uni and it was nice to have that 8A* GCSE rumour cleared up haha

    Yeah I'd assume a university that requires an A at Maths A-level would have a reasonable amount of maths in it.

    My cousin did Philosophy and Economics at Durham a few years ago and told me that he found Further Maths A-Level useful for his degree, so I assume there is a fair bit of maths (either optional or compulsory)

    Looking at the course outline, it looks as though "Economic Data Analysis" and "Economic Methods" are probably maths based, but this is only my speculation and it'd probably be best to ask on the open day or on the Durham forums

    I missed the open day so could you explain to me what he said about this 8A* rumour?

    Well basically I've heard quite a lot on tsr about Warwick not looking at economics applications without 8A* at GCSE and I'm sure most people have as well.
    Someone asked whether they even look at no. of A*s as they had heard you need a certain number to get in and he said that's absolute rubbish and they only take GCSE results as a last resort factor and they read through every single application anyway.
