Just interested whether there are any current economics uni students who didn't take A level economics, and if so:
1. Which a level subjects did you take?
2. Which university are you studying at?
3. What extra stuff did you do to boost your application e.g. wider reading?
thanks

Agreed. It's more important to study Maths than Economics for an Economics degree. Strange but true!

I study BSc Economics. You only need maths at A-Level. None of the course relies on any material taught at A-Level Economics, and often disregards it. Anything you do need to know is just taught from scratch.

I am not an economics student but from memory there are a number of universities that dont require A levels. I think those that dont require A levels include Newcastle, Lancaster, Nottingham, Swansea, Reading, Royal Holloway, Sussex and Eat Anglia although you need to check this is correct.

Depends on how high you're aiming. For Oxbridge, you better have read very widely and know a lot about the subject. For a top Russel Group, it'd be good to do some reading or do some stuff to demonstrate interest on personal statement. Otherwise, just have good predicted grades.
