    Maths is only really used in the first year first semester (Mathematical economics - i.e. matrices, calculus etc). The rest of the quantitative stuff on the course is statistics. You can take advanced mathematical economics in year 3 last semester if you want, but statistics is far more useful in economics than maths ever has been!

    My tip would be to just write in a very punchy manner. Economics A-level for me was difficult to get a good mark because the essays were actually easy but very broad, so I just improved my writing style. Weird tip I know, but it worked!

    What exam board were you on for each of your subjects? How would you go about revising harder modules in maths in particular?
