Hi everyone, I’m currently going into year 13 and I’m taking economics, sociology, and English literature for A level. I’m hoping to do something related to economics at uni, but I’m struggling to know what to do as I don’t have A level maths. I’m not bad at maths, however I’m just more interested in the govt policy side of economics. So to get to the main point, I can either study economics at somewhere like Leeds, or I can do economics and politics at somewhere like Exeter, which of these do you think would be best? I’m not ruling out the idea of also doing a masters in economics in the future, so I don’t know if the latter option would put me at a disadvantage, despite being a better uni.
Thanks

Firstly, the uni the other post listed is absolutely trash, it's not even in the top2 unis in Liverpool let alone being good compared to other UK universities. Whilst you definitely want a university that is strong in teaching, employers of economists do unfortunately care a fair amount about the 'prestige' of your university.

Regarding your actual post, it's a fairly common question people asking about uni economics without a-level maths. I know a fair few that have done it and the unis you should be targeting for this are Nottingham, Leeds, Manchester. Maybe a tiny bit further down on the list are places like Sheffield, Glasgow, Birmingham, etc. Don't apply to Liverpool Hope university lol and don't use the typical university rankings, they're useless.
