    I am thinking of finance if I get into LSE however universities such as Warwick , UCL and Imperial do not offer a finance degree. Would an Economics degree be better or would an Economics and Maths degree be better?

    Have you got any conditional offers from universities , which ones and what grade do you need to get at A level?
    Also for AEA do you need to revise extra content or does it cover the same content as further maths and a level maths?

    Maths and economics will open up all the options in banking, more than a finance degree.

    So you reckon a maths and economics degree from LSE would get you into investment banking? However maths and economics from Warwick and UCL have higher requirements than LSE so what do you reckon?
