    Hi, I'm currently doing Business Studies, a finance course and media, I was wondering whether I would struggle studying Economics at uni having not studied it at A Levels or maths/statistics or any other subject like that. Is there much maths involved? And would someone that hasn't done economics before catch up easily? Thanks.

    You don't need to have Economics A-level because Economics at A-level is very different to university level Economics. While Maths is a requirment for Economics at top universities. A lot of maths is involved in Economics degree. At least in univerities such as Oxbridge, LSE, UCL, etc.

    And yes you would easily catch up without A-level Economics, don't worry about that.
