I needed A*AA for economics at Nottingham Uni.
I got A*BB , so they have offered me a place for Industrial Economics instead.
Should I accept it? Or accept Economics at Newcastle University?
Help !!!!

Did you have a question...?
Yes....i had predicted grades of A*AA and achieved only A*BB. Nottingham has given me a changed course offer for Industrial economics and Newcastle for straight economics.
Im really keen on Notts but unsure of the industrial economics.what shall i do ?

.ACS. may be able to advise. My understanding is industrial economics will focus more on microeconomics applied to business and industry, so you won't cover e.g. macroeconomics, development economics, international economics etc. Depending on what you're hoping to do in the future, this may not make a difference. Most graduate roles don't require any specific degree, so any course should acceptable as long as you do well in it.

If you wanted to potentially go on to a PhD in economics (i.e. not some area of industrial economics), or the government economic service, then you might need/benefit from a single honours economics degree rather than an industrial economics degree. For anything else, it shouldn't make a difference so it really depends on how you feel about the course.

Also please look at the dates on threads before you post in them, you've bumped several 2-3 year old threads asking questions about this course, when most of them the original posters are no longer active. I've also merged your two threads in this forum so the full question is now in this thread
