Looking at Unis for Economics in 2021. Not taking a level maths and predicted AAB with A Maths AS. Shortlist so far Leeds, Nottingham, Manchester and Southampton.

Any suggestions or experience with these unis?

Thanks

Both Manchester and Southampton ask for maths a level.
You might want to check the other unis too as a lot require maths for econ. Also some say they 'prefer' maths. Tbh not sure what they mean by this and to what extent not doing maths will matter but def something to consider
Similarly Notts a level offer for econ is A*AA also something to think about
Other than that they're all really really good unis and heard a lot of good things about all

You may want to rethink economics if you aren't doing a maths a level. The best economics courses will have a lot of maths. Maybe consider economics and politics or something else. Or business if you don't like maths. You will be at a disadvantage compared to other applicants if they 'prefer' maths and you aren't doing it

Hi LE_FROGUE,

Would you consider studying Economics at Loughborough? You don't need Maths A-Level and ask for AAB (excluding General Studies, Critical Thinking, Communication and Culture and Citizenship Studies).

We have a virtual open day taking place on Saturday 28th November - why not register and you can chat live with the academic staff and students and see if you like the sound of the course, the staff and university.

Do let me know if you have any questions.

All the best

Just out of interest, where are you interested in then? Have you revised your options? You don’t want to end up with very little/none offers

Hi LE_FROGUE,

That's absolutely no problem, but glad that you're keeping an open mind and checking out the open day

All the best in whichever university you decide to apply for.

Think Nottingham ask for A*AA which means you'd be unlikely to get an offer there. What you can do though is apply for their industrial economics program, this has a AAB grade requirement but is more focused on microeconomics.

Given that you dont do A level maths, it would seem you are more suited for a BA rather than a BSC so i d recommend you look at those, however some uni like Cambridge call themselves BA but are in fact very mathematical, so watch out for that.
