Is economics massively maths based? Because I only got a 5 in math yet I’m still taking it?

I am guessing this is A-level you are talking about. From what I heard from my friends, it is 60% theory and 40% maths calculations. There are a lot of theories that don't necessarily require you to know all the calculations. However, there are some theories that are purely based around formulas. So it varies. I mean you should be fine, I also got a C in maths (which is about Grade 4-5) and I did just fine.

If you are planning to study economics at university, the university I went to, has a ratio of 1:1, so 50% theory and 50% maths calculations. I am now pursuing a master in Financial Economics.
