    Ive heard Degrees with minors added on are less reputable, is it worth getting the minor in business? As my ambitions lie within the financial sector, an pure English degree is good for that aswell.

    This is the course you're offered as an alternative to Economics, isn't it? Did you speak to the uni about why they're offering you English? If you want to do finance I'd encourage you to go through Clearing to get onto a Finance/Econ course.

    No other uni's will accept my grades that i would want to go to, all are BBB and i got BBC, i rang Leicester, they wouldnt even accept me with BBC.

    My insurance is Essex, and i really dont want to go there.

    I'm not certain what their requirements will be, but Anglia Ruskin, Bradford, Buckingham, UCLan, Dundee, UEA, Hull, Kent, Lancaster etc are all claiming to be in Clearing for Economics.

    I can understand that you don't want to go to a 'lesser' uni, but surely it makes more sense to do a relevant degree if you know what career you want to go into?
