    Does cardiff look at GCSE grades for economics?

    All universities look at GCSE grades, but as part of your overall performance academically, along with other things. Take extra-curricular activities, for example. These can be useful to place into your personal statement alongside your consignment of excellent grades! If your grades aren't perfect then you're part of the 98%, so there's no need to worry. Simply put your head down during A-Levels and achieve good grades. You could always back up your passion for economics by doing some wider reading or trying to get some work experience in, say, a bank. I recommend reading Freakonomics as a starter; this book would be useful to discuss when applying.
