    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.
    I can understand maths in context, but m1, c3 and c4 are simply ridiculous.
    Most courses i've applied to are also BA courses, meaning they'll be less mathematically intense.
    Ironically differentiation is about the only topic i understand atm, trigonometry however...

    It really depends on the choice of modules. For sure, the harder maths modules (relative) are there as options if people want to go further and study at MSc.

    But please don't big it up and make the guy feel like he will fail before he's even started.

    Really economists just need to know a certain list of branches of mathematics well. Greg Mankiw sums them up on his blog here: http://gregmankiw.blogspot.com/2006/...h-courses.html

    Not bigging it up but you do need a certain standard of Math before hand, he said he's applying for mostly BAs anyway so it shouldn't be an issue.
