I would have thought so. You could talk about industrial and micro being your particular focus of interest, straight economics admission tutors wouldn't find that odd.

No problem. Industrial Economics is a popular part of straight Economics anyway; they won't mind.

Ahh good point, I'm still thinking about combining with Maths aswell although I don't think I could handle more than 30% of it being Maths :confused:

Also does anyone have any idea of how many people warwick intake on industrial econ, as nottingham has an estimate of 30?

No opportunity costs of burning coal then? Shame, shame.
Unfortunatly not. You do get to do lots of first-degree, second-degree and third-degree price discrimination though. Which is equally as exciting.

So only 42 places overall, probably going to need to exceed the AAB/ABB they state.

Have your teachers written your references already? Wow. Efficient. I don't think mine do it for a while yet.

Perhaps they were provisional copies or something, 3 of them are waiting for AS results before adding predictions anyway. My business teacher is a bit eager though predicting me an A for A2 based on 1 January module, not that I'm complaining. Anyway enough with the education, it's footy time now!!!

Ahhh I'm so confused. I can't do economics, cos I don't have maths, I can't do economics hist, cos I don't have history. Maybe I should just go back to the business and management idea!
Not really. Maths is fundamental to the study of economic, that's obvious; and whether you do straight Economics, joing honours Economics or 25% Economics, you will come upon some fairly advanced stuff. But you can do it without A-Level maths, just it will be incredible hard work, and you probable won;t enjoy the first year much.
