Hi, I'm picking my a-levels this year and I'm not sure if I'll be good at econ. I'm good at maths (hoping to get a 7 or 8) and I've heard that if you're good at maths, you'll be good at Econ. I liked doing Econ when I went to a taster day but I don't know if I'll find it hard later on because there are a lot of essays to write but I don't enjoy writing essays. Any tips?

I studied economics to A-Level and no you don't need to study even maths at A-level for it. I think I remember having something easy like percentage changes but other than that there is no hard core maths or anything. Look at textbooks and past papers to get a feel of the subect and what it entails.

At A-level, there is not much maths in the course. The maths is at basic GCSE level. You only start doing more complicated maths at degree level. The economics exams mainly invole writing essays. If you don't like essay writing you might not enjoy the course.
