    AAD at AS, received on offer from Manchester, waiting on Durham, Loughborough, Lancaster and Kent

    I think you're right, i should be working to improve my grade in maths, if i do that, i'll be fine.

    Economics is not exactly maths intensive. If you can get that A* and A and then bump up your maths to a C, you should be in with a good chance as long as the uni's you have applied to are not top tier high demand like LSE or Warwick etc.

    It's still got heavy amounts of differentiation/integration and when it comes to stats and metrics you are outright ****ed without a decent level of maths.

    Just gotta keep at it with the maths or change to another subject ASAP as I sincerely doubt you'd get an offer even if you had 100%, 100% and a U

    I take maths and if you make sure you thoroughly learnt he concepts and formulas, then use all the past papers on the face of the Earth, it should work out - if you put the time & effort in.
