Maths is a requirement for Economics at most top unis, and further maths is a preferred subject (essentially a requirement at LSE & Cambridge).

I know but is there a way to work around this - that is my question - you litterally just stated the obvious lol
Of course not for Econ. It's a requirement. You wouldn't ask if you have to do maths if you already know it's a requirement

No as BA Eco is a thing - just saying
Probably Econ with Geog? Or other combinations. But defo not pure Econ.

But if you’re not keen on maths then won’t an economics degree be just as bad?

erm I’m not sure it’s narrow minded to have entry requirements..... if I wanted to study Music at degree but I only had physics and maths A level and couldn’t play an instrument I wouldn’t be able to, it’s the same with most subjects surely

well if England cant offer any good unis with my a levels , the US of A surely can provide my needs but i mean LSE,Imperial,UCL etc,,,
Imperial doesn't offer Econ or Geog. Do your own research and please fix your attitude.

Forget it - its a common trait with these big narrow-minded institutions everybody has to study the same stuff and then they sell themselves as diverse - contradictory right lol

Hi im in yr 11 and get my gcses in less than 48 hrs and i recently went on holiday to Spain and realy wanna study spanish further, also i think i made a colossal mess of my Maths exam and I think I did much better in Spanish - also i would much rather study physics than maths eventhough i know maths is heavily required by unis
so i wanna study 3 a levels :
Geography
Economics
Spanish/Physics
any advice? thx
It's uncommon, but not impossible, to study Physics without Maths.

See what your GCSE grades actually are before deciding too much, and look at the entry requirements for the courses you are interested in at universities you want to consider. The requirements vary by university.

None (afaik) require Maths for Geography.

Many do require Maths for Economics, but definitely not all.

It varies.
