    So has anyone come across any backways into good Unis. What I mean by this is any surprisingly low entry requirements for top Unis?
    E.g Economics and Economic History at LSE: AAB
    PS: Any course

    What is the point in going to the best university doing something that is pointless (no one else is doing it) and you have no passion for it?

    LSE causes that don't require Maths are often AAA or AAB as those who are very good at maths (as you'd need to be for a maths based course) should be able to get an A*.

    That said, Econ and EconHis does require A level maths.


    If it's a very good uni you'll struggle to get in if you've no passion for the course. The requirements are a minimum after all.
