Your choices will depend on you. I have preferences, but my criteria could well be different to that of yours.

Manchester would be my first choice. It's challenging (very mathematical), Russell Group, and a top choice for employers. Just expect to work hard there.

Queen Mary would be a good insurance choice for me. It's got a good reputation for economics, and it's local to London which is great for internships, etc. It doesn't seem as math heavy as Manchester's degree though.

To be honest, the choice in modules don't really change that much across all 3 and they all seem interesting and varied. The degrees from Manchester and Queen Mary allows you to study modules that would provide exemptions for accounting qualifications e.g. CIMA, ACCA, ACA, albiet only a handful of exemptions (it's economics after all, not accounting). SOAS is more accommodating if maths isn't your strong suit though.

If you have done your research on the universities, it shouldn't be difficult to figure out the nuances between them.

I’m planning on doing BAEcon at manchester though, I do a level maths and I’m not bad it, thats why i wanna do a course less mathematically heavy.

Conclusion is kind of the same. It won't be as heavily favoured because there is less maths involved though. Manchester remain my top choice.
