Hi all, I want to be an investment banker.

I am doing A Levels in Maths,FM,Chemistry and Physics.

But I don't know what degree to do/take.

I.e. at some unis i.e. Cambridge the most relevant course I have found is straight up Economics. So what I'm really asking is what is the best/relevant undergrad degree to take and where would it be best to take it.

Kind Regards

-Nate

Choose a degree you would like to study for 3 years, but at a top uni. Ideally a quantitative degree, but really it doesn't matter. Just go to a top uni.

Yes Economics is fine. The key to breaking in though is being crazy proactive, a degree from a top uni on its own will never cut it.

Unfortunately, getting into a target doesn't make the world your oyster; the reality is that it is just another stepping stone. I know countless people studying rigorous degrees from Oxbridge who didn't even manage to get Spring Week placements

Oh right I see. So in addition to studying, I would have to get a placement. Do you know if I should get work experience in the summer holidays. I am in year 13 at the moment and I intend to take a gap year.

Yeah idd, it seems that getting placements/work experience is even more competitive than Oxbridge medicine lol.
