    St Andrews has both for Economics and I don't know which one to put down in my UCAS application

    The differences are given here. ETA particulary note the differences in entrance requirments.

    You'll get a BSc from the science faculty and a BA-equivalent (called an MA) from the arts faculty.

    Notably if you are in the science faculty you have to take 2 science/maths modules in your first 2 years. Also, in general faculty of arts students may struggle to get onto oversubscribed science modules and vice versa (generally only applies to IR, which faculty of science students usually can't do without special permission).
Which party will you be voting for in the General Election 2017?
