    I don't see why not. You'll probably need AAb for those unis.

    Ha! I do believe I am buggered then, A Polish, C History, C General Studies, D RS, E Geography. Though I was assured by one of the professors of Political Economy at the UofB that the Polish A Level will count as one of my 'three' grades.

    Really? That's reassured me! How is it? Is the course hard? Is there a lot of maths involved

    Not sure how hard it is.Time will tell tbh!
    Yes there is a lot of maths involved but it's interesting

    Tbh, you will need some maths at university economics especially if you have to do econometrics modules which are basically statistics.

    Most universities might make you do a maths module or something in your first year as a sort of refresher or to get you up to speed. But in any case with econometrics, I found they start off at GCSE level statistics and build it up that way.


    BTW I did BSc. Economics and Maths
