How do you know you're interested in economics and finance at university if you've never studied either, not to mention the difference between a-level and degree level economics?

In general though I'd simply say that if you're good at maths and can write compelling essays, plus a perceived interest in Econ/Fin then you should be good to go

Hiya, i am interested in economics and finance as I have done research, watched lectures, read books, done work experience at investment banks and would like to pursue a profession in finance. I have an A in A-level maths and A* and A in psychology and History so i would assume from that i can write good essays!! thank you for the advice! Most of the courses mention that no prior knowledge of economics is needed though as not all colleges offer it so hopefully it should be ok!

Yes uni level economics doesn't require previous study of economics. There's not a single university in the country that has a-level economics as a requirement so this shows you you'll be fine. In my economics degree, they basically teach a-level Economics content in the first semester to give everyone an equal grounding, I assume it's similar at other institutions.

The fact that unis tend to only have mathematics requirements for BSc Economics courses tells you pretty much all you need to know about the courses haha

some economics students without A level economics feel like they're missing something
others are held back because they can't get out of the A level economics mindset

you'll be fine, just pay attention
