Can you give me an overview on what you learn in economics

I've also not done economics in A level - does that mean I'm at a disadvantage?

Also is it easy or hard?

A Level Economics is not a stated requirement for Economics at any University in the UK. Cambridge has noted that A-Level Economics is 'preferable' which is an indicator that its a good idea if you can take it, but it clearly isn't essential. If Economics is not offered at your 6th Form/college then it will help your application if this fact is mentioned in your reference.

Have a read of this guide (some information may be outdated so don't focus on any specific details, but this is quite informative)

Is it hard?
Every subject at university is hard. It’s about your strengths. Do you enjoy numbers, diagrams and graphs, and both normative and positive thinking and debate? Do you actually have an interest in maco and micro economic isssues?

These are the questions you should be asking. Not whether it’ll be easy. Art at London Met will be hard for people with no artistic ability, the same way Economics at LSE will be difficult for others.
