    Hi, thanks for taking a look at this.
    I'm quite muddled up and not sure what to study.

    I got A*AAB in my A-levels and since I don't have Maths I can't do quite a few of the courses I'm interested in.

    It has ultimately come down to:
    Business Management @ King's College London

    Banking & finance @ Cass Business School

    Geography @ UCL/LSE/Kings

    PPE @ Kings

    What are your thoughts on these courses. I have an interest in all of them.

    I intend to use the degree to eventually enter a role in Finance, be it IB, trading, analyst etc.

    What do you think I should do?

    For IB -

    1) LSE/UCL (Geo)
    2) Cass (Finance) / Kings (PPE)
    3) Kings (Management)
    4) Kings (Geo)

    Thanks for answering. Out of curiosity, what made you rank it like that?

    That's what I've been told. However, Kings is a Russle Group uni whereas Cass's reputation comes from its Masters courses.

    Re Geo at UCL/LSE, their requirements are AAB-ABB whereas Business Management at Kings stands at A*AA.
    Does that make a difference? Why is it like that?

    Thanks

    Entry requirements mean bugger all. Just get into the best uni you can (a target/semi-target) and pick something you'll enjoy studying.

    not true - LSE Geog is AAA, UCL Geog ranges from A*AA - AAB (speaking as someone who's reapplying, been rejected from LSE and gotten an offer from Kings 2 years running)

    The only problem is that I can't decide what to do
