    Hi!
    I'm will most likely be doing Maths, Further Maths, History and Economics at A Level with an intention to do finance. I'm in year 11 right now and am predicted one 9 grade,seven 8 grades, three 7 grades, and one 5 grade (photography), so I should do reasonably well in my A Levels. I was just wondering: will I need to do economics at Oxbridge if I intend to do well in the finance job sector? I wish to be an economist or just someone who advises people/corporations/government with their finances. However, I heard that there are some professions which require a degree from a prestigious university in order to do well in. Is this one of them?

    Also, if you have any advice, tips or guidelines on getting into Oxbridge then I'd be very happy if you included them in your answer. Thanks in advance.

    Nowadays many firms accept appreniceships from sixth form leavers, have a look at the said firms and see what they offer. I'd recommend not going to oxbridge purely due to most employers drifting away from degrees now
