    I can't seem to find any information on the A Level grades required in order to apply for the Economics related courses? :confused:

    Does anyone here know?

    Thanks in advance.

    A minimum of three GCE A-levels plus three GCSE O-levels in six different subjects relevant to economics (at least a GCE A-level in Mathematics and preferably a GCSE O-Level in English as a First Language).
    Most Dutch courses do not require certain grades, only passes.

    It is hard to say anything about equivalences, because the education systems are completely different. E.g. the 20% most able Dutch secondary school students do VWO (the Dutch pre-university qualifications). The 30% below that do havo (the Dutch pre-HBO qualifications). If you completely disregard this difference with A-levels, 7 is indeed just as frequently awarded as a (low) B.
