A levels for EconomicsWatch
At study Economics at Loughborough, no specific A Level (or equivalent) subjects are required, we strongly prefer combinations drawn from traditional (academic) subjects to demonstrate a range of numerical, analytical and discursive abilities. These A Levels include: Ancient History, Biology, Classical Civilisation, Chemistry, Economics, English Language/Literature, Geography, Government and Politics, History, Languages (non-native), Law, Maths/Further Maths, Philosophy, Physics, Psychology, Religious Studies, Sociology and Statistics.
Thank you for your response. If the school emphasize on taking only 3 A Levels, Will Math, Economics and English give a good go? Does A Level Economics be considered as an advantage for Bsc, Econ or otherwise?
Well you could drop English if you want and just do maths, FM and Econ. However, I'm guessing you've picked English because you like it as naturally it's very different to maths and econ. So yes maths, FM, Econ and English would be good for Cambridge and LSE if you get the right grades and pass the Cambridge test/interview
I study PPE (Politics, Philosophy and Economics), and I took Politics, Economics and Maths (and AS Further Maths).
Some places like LSE will want a full A-Level in Further Maths (I don't think they can put that on their 'official' course requirements since many schools don't offer FM, but they basically need you to have done it, or something similar).
Most should be happy with a good score in Maths though - for my course, Maths wasn't required (but was strongly recommended).
I know many people here who didn't take Economics A-level, but I'm not sure of anyone who didn't take Maths.
