    Hello everyone

    I just got my final foundation programme results and information that i'm rejected from my firm choice at Queen Mary - BSc Economics.
    The reason is just 1% missing from one module.

    The university has offered me to choose a course from school of mathematics instead - for example Mathematics with statistics and Economics.

    The modules look quite similar to Economics, however i'm not sure if I would cope with such high-level mathematics as an major.

    I have taken mathematics for economics during foundation programme and my results were various - sometimes around 50%, sometimes strong distinction.

    Anyone knows how hard is the maths material on such course? My will was to study economics only.


    My second choice is Business Economics at Westminister, I know it is weaker, however I have no idea if it's better to take desired course at worse university or go for difficult major at Queen Mary


    Thank you for advices in advance. I have no idea what to do
