    Hi,
    im struggling to decide what course to take at uni. I am currently looking at economics degree. I did business at A level but did not do economics or mathematics.
    Im looking at universities that dont require maths which in fact there are a few, looking at loughborough, sussex, southampton.

    I have a B in maths at GCSE
    I like maths but am worried i will struggle. Ive read the thread on it already. Im worried i wont be good enough and take the maths.
    Thanks

    Hi,Have you considered a course like Quantitative Social Sciences? The University of Sheffield runs the course I take and you get to do statistics modules, which are very employable at the moment, alongside the modules in your chosen pathway. If you have an interest in business, you could take the business management pathway? The course is really flexible, and very interesting. I don't know if this is the type of degree you are interested in, but it might be worth looking into it. Plus, they teach you all the statistics modules from a beginner level so you only need a C at GCSE maths.Let me know if you have any questions.
