Can I do economics at a top uni without Further Maths?Watch
However now I am really enjoying economics a level and think I would like to study it at university and am regretting not taking FM, as I've heard many of the top universities strongly desire it. Since it is the first term I still may have the option of joining the Further Maths class to try to catch up, but they have covered a lot already.
I don't currently have predicted grades, but my GCSE grades were 9 9's and 1 8. I am definitely willing to put the work into catching up with Further Maths and will probably drop chemistry if I do pick it up. Any advice on whether picking up FM so late seems worth it or not would be appreciated.
answers this question.
What exam board are you with? You could ask to switch one of your current A level math stats or mechanics units to a decision unit. I'd imagine it was those they were after. I did OCR MEI Decision 1 and 2 and they're pretty easy and quick to learn!
