    I'm struggling to decide between applying for economics (Loughborough, QUB, Birmingham) or a bunch of other courses that I'm interested in (namely political economy at KCL, planning and real estate at UCL, social policy at LSE). Which trio offers greater graduate opportunities?
    (I've taken economics A level but not maths, predicted A*AA).

    Take the course at the better university (in your case, this is social policy at LSE).

    Do you ACTUALLY want to study the course? If so, then go with the best university for that course. Do NOT however choose a course at a better uni because you think it's easier to get into - that defeats the whole point of going to uni which is to learn.
