To explain the title: I’d like to study either straight maths, ‘maths with economics’ or ‘maths and economics’.

GCSE’s: 5 A* (including grade 9 in maths) 5 A

A Levels: Predicted A* (Maths), A* (Further Maths), A* (History), A (Physics)

Context: I am in Year 12 and have a huge passion for maths as well as an interest in economics. My interest in economics actually comes from my history studies on Weimar Germany, during which I have learned about hyperinflation and the basics of currency rates. I live in Manchester, but I think I’m based too far from the university to live at home whilst attending.

Potential destinations: I have considered Oxbridge, but I’m not sure I’d enjoy living far from a large city. I am also considering UCL, KCL and Imperial, as well as Manchester and possibly Warwick. I’d like to attend a top university in terms of reputation and academics, but I would also love to actually enjoy the social experience (hence why I’m avoiding LSE... lol). I definitely prefer city life and would love to live in or around London. I am also thinking of applying to Stanford, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the time and effort (SATs and such).

Could anyone recommend either one of my current considerations or another university that would satisfy my (needy) preferences? Which university is most reputable? How severe is the cost of living in London, and is it worth it?

Thanks for any help!!

(Feel free to put my post in the correct forum as I have no idea which is suitable lol)

MORSE at Warwick is pretty cool.
You might wanna look into that.
