Hi, I am looking to apply to this course and am currently predicted A*A*A*(Econ, Geo, History), I am wondering why the requirements are so low (ABB) for Durham ( a top tier uni), and would this be seen as a good course for IB spring weeks and internships?
Many Thanks

If it's a finance course that doesn't require maths then it's probably going to be quite relaxed, that's why the boundaries are low. Just a guess though.

I think with your grades you should target Durham Econ. The finance degree should be fine though. Just note that BSc finance isn't as respected in the UK as Econ in general.

I hope you know that the course you do doesn't particularly matter as long as you go to a good uni so you could choose more than finance or Econ, if you have other interests.

You should be fine with finance anyway. HR isn't looking at grade boundaries lol

You can apply to the Notts Econ course and that will give you a better shot at going into IB because it is more Mathematical and is more intense.

Not necessarily true. Nottingham's econ course doesn't require Maths and is very well respected.
