    How hard is BA economics, i haven't done maths since GCSE, so I would be appplying to BA courses for economics such as Goldsmith, Essex and Hertfordshire, I did economics at A-level. i was wondering how hard is economics at a level is there a lot of maths involved considering it says you only need a B in maths GCSE?

    I don't do economics, I do politics, but I have lots of friends who do PPE. I got an A in economics at A-level and an A in GCSE maths, so thats where I stand.

    From what I've seen, by looking at my friends text books, I would not have been able to do economics at degree level. I would say you need at least an AS understanding of maths. It's nothing like A-level economics, in which you don't use much maths at all, in contrast at degree level it seems it is incredibly maths orientated.

    I’m afraid your uni choices are severely limited - most unis for BA economics want a Maths A-Level
