    So basically im in year 13 and I've just received my as level results.
    Its time for me to apply to university, however I am in a dilemma between whether to do economics at degree level or not. This is because I have not done essay writing at as level only at gcse.
    I got b's for my english lang and lit.
    I do a levels further maths, maths, physics and I am now dropping chemistry.
    By the way the course being considered here is the Bsc in mathematical economics and statistics at uni of birmingham.

    My question is: will I have to be very good at essay writing to get say a 1st or 2:1?

    The essays are mostly maths and explaining the maths. Little flair is needed whatsoever.
