I honestly think having a C in AS Maths will look positive on your application, it re-enforces your D*D*D* in Business would look excellent

that sounds good, it depends on what you're considering as more than likely, i think any on that list that require DDM-DDD or even D*DD would be safe for you, LSE and Durham would be optimistic and maybe UCL if you were to apply for a different course to ITMB would be optimistic, Bath i think would be semi-optimistic

Bath and Durham need D*DD, however i'd regard them as optimistic as they're prestigious, particularly for business and finance.

Loughborough could be a semi-optimistic choice as they need DDD and are still are good uni

My more than likely options are places like Hull, requirements vary from DMM to DDM

From what i've seen so far, and from contacting the admissions office Bath and Durham typical offers consist of D*DD. Bath is Fairly prestigious and especially for finance and accounting/business so i'd regard it as an optimistic option.

A more than likely option i thought was something like Hull, the requirements were DDM

Loughborough could be a semi-optimistic option as their requirements were DDD
Hull are ranked 63rd in the UK, with your predictions you could aim a lot higher, even for a safe choice UEA, Sussex and Swansea also require DDM and they rank a lot higher

AsI said before with your predictions you would be likely to get offers from these sort of universities, I would say if you can find a safe option of DDM/DDD that you would be really happy going to then have that as your one safe one, then have one highly optimistic one like LSE and then the other 3 as what you would be on track to almost certainely achieve DDD-D*DD so for example Bath, Durham, UCL or one of the other ones on the list?

The reason that I say this is that you will realise when you come to apply if you have a decent enough personal statement and predicted the required grades, there is no real reason why they would reject you, if you are still worried about the C grades you have and the extra time taken to do these then you can email the admissions and straight up ask if it will negatively impact your application, personally i would see it as a positive especially as one of those subjects is Maths, btw are the CC grades for A2 or AS?

AS

And yeah maybe hull isn't the best choice, maybe shifting loughborough and UEA as safer options would be good. Then optimistic but doable options for the other 3 options (ie Bath, Durham)

I think e-mailing them would be a good idea, ill talk to tutors in the mean time too, thanks for your help btw

Hi, does anyone know whether I can get into an economics degree with business BTEC predicted D*D*D? I’ve studied business since GCSE and it’s becoming very boring to me. I’ve researched abit about economics and it’s very interesting.
Although it’s got a lot of maths in I know I can do well.
So do I have a shot here??

Absolutely, I'm predicted D*DD and I got offer to study Economics at Glasgow and other Universities. Although it requires a lot of maths, I'm planning on self-learning the basics of A-Level maths as I have not done it.

Yes you can definitely do it. I got the same grade as you and managed to get into Warwick studying PPE. Some straight econ degrees require A-level in maths but not all. Also make sure that your personal statement is very good and stands out, I would suggest to spend a lot of time on it. Best of luck!
