There is a reason most unis require maths for economics. But you don't strictly need it.

it's not a strict requirements to do maths, but it may help you keep more doors open. that being said, i wouldn't take maths unless you enjoy it and are willing to put effort in the subject. your call at the end of the day

Hi Will Stephens,

From my experience, I am currently studying a geography degree. The main reason which influenced this decision is my interest in geography. However, it was also influenced by my choice of A Levels “Biology, Geography and Business.”

I was also concerned with not studying A Level Maths; however, it was not essential to the degree I wanted to study. The choice to study A Level Biology instead of A Level Maths gave me the advantage in my 1st year of study at university.

Therefore, if you would like to study Economics and Politics or Geography (and economics?), then you may want to choose the A Levels which will give you the advantage at university. An excellent online resource is the “UCAS search tool.” It will show the universities which offer the course you are keen on and their entry requirements.

To find out more information, the current Coronavirus situation means that university open days are likely to be postponed for the foreseeable future. However, you can contact directly the universities which you are interested in for their advice, and access The Student Room Forum for further information on the courses and entry requirements.

If you have any further question, please don’t hesitate to ask.

All the best with your studies,

Best Wishes,
Sam Townsend | Bsc(Hons) Geography Student at The University Of Huddersfield
