    Lots of calculus.

    And LSE's economics course isn't even the most mathematically heavy. I believe that honor belongs to Cambridge and Bristol based on what I've heard.

    It's definitely highly mathematical and I can verify that for UCL as I heard some UCL students speak on the Open Day.

    I'm in Year 13 and I'm applying for maths, not economics though there was a six month period in Year 12 when I wanted to study economics.

    There is a lot of calculus in economics. Microeconomics and macroeconomics are essentially constrained optimisation problems. Econometrics is effectively statistics. You'll also make heavy use of linear algebra in the more advanced modules.

    I did a first year on a PhD Economics course where we taught modules so I hope I can answer.

    Yes Economics = Maths at the highest level (after BSc)

    Be very sound in these areas:

    1) Optimisation (Lagrangian, Simplex, Runge Kutta)
    2) Statistics ( OLS, GLS, IV, GMM, Time Series, Central Limit Theorem, Hypothesis Testing)
    3) Calculus (Multivariable as well as normal)
