Do you have to do Maths with Economics for LSE?Watch
Nah you need an A* A-Level Maths. Econ is heavily maths based that's why.
I am really confused now because I am not sure whether LSE demands math a levels or not.
You must do A level Maths. AS Further Maths is also desirable. The Economics course at LSE is highly mathematical and you must have an enjoyment and aptitude for Mathematics to do the course. A level Economics is not even required to do Economics at University because they are very different as it is not mathematical at all at A level. I achieved A*AA in Maths Economics Chemistry Respectively this year. I am taking a gap year and am going to apply to LSE for Economics.. I made the mistake of taking A level Economics, I should have taken Further Maths instead then I couldve got 3A*s instead of just A*AA as I was not good at essay based subject such as Economics so it took a lot of hard work and time which could have been spent on other subjects to get the A* in them. If you are good at Maths do Further Maths and take Chemistry. If you think you are good at essays then you can take Economics.
I've just completed my GCSEs and I got a grade 5 and entry requirements for maths a levels is a grade 7 (or at least a 6) so there is no way the school will allow me to do Math a level but please I really want to do economics at LSE. Please I need guidance. Thanks!
You need A-level Maths, or you're limited to some subjects that are e.g. "subject with Economics" degrees, rather than a degree in Economics. As above, Economics at university (especially at "top" universities like LSE, Oxbridge, Warwick, UCL etc) is necessarily mathematical. If you don't like maths, generally, you will not like Economics at degree level at such universities, and probably anywhere.
