    I've got an offer from Cardiff for Economics BSc but im worried about the amount of maths involved as its not something im strong at.
    Im thinking of switching to economics and history or economics and philosophy.
    does anyone know anything about these courses or if they are less mathematically based?

    Hey, I'm in my first year studying Econ at Cardiff. I only have a C in GCSE maths and i'm coping fine. If you're prepared to work at it you'll be fine. Even if you do a combination you'll still have the core modules for Econ which is where the maths lies.

    Seriously, I wanted to do straight economics as I thought there'd be enough in it to keep my fascination with maths at bay, do you literally not even do calculus?

    Yes there is maths, but the uni you go to will limit what you learn

    Wow, I was scared about doing a degree in economics with an A-level in maths!

    Hey I think the first year for the courses would be rather similar so if k were you I'd just do the first year then decide
