    Hey, I applied to study economics and i'm really regretting it. My predicted grades are A*AB in Politics, History and Maths respectively. And so far I have two offers:
    Newcastle (AAB)
    Nottingham (AAA)
    After thinking about it loads I really don't want to study economics 1) because of the maths content, I hate maths and find it really hard; and 2) I want to do a course that has much more breadth of subject areas. I literally have no idea what to do and kind of stressing a bit so just wondering if anyone can tell me what my options are?
    You can either find a course you want to do and ask if the universities you've applied to will consider a course swap, try other universities in ucas extra, then try clearing or take a gap year.
