    Hi guys, i'm in year 12 and i still have no idea what i want to do most of the people in my year have clear plans on what they want to pursue but i'm not really sure yet.

    I take a levels in maths, economics, politics and english literature. I did think of doing law for a bit but i feel like if i ever wanted to go in that route i'd much rather do a conversion course. I've recently thought about economics as a degree since i enjoy the subject, but my teacher told me that its gonna be hard to get into a good uni to do econ if i dont take further maths which i dont have.

    I just want to know what options i have, like what degrees could i go into and research?

    Any suggestions/advice would be very much appreciated

    You don't need further maths to study economics - it's an advantage for some universities but only as a 4th/5th A level (see http://www.lse.ac.uk/study/undergrad...nomics.aspx#Q1 and http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/ec...ions-questions and https://www.ucl.ac.uk/economics/unde...s-faqs/#alevel ) .

    If you enjoy econ then definitely look into degree courses on the subject - look at modules and topics you'd cover to check that you're happy with the content.
