Economics modules

Hi!

I’ve applied to BA Geography at UCL and LSE and I’m interested in their economics modules. In first year to study a micro and macroeconomics module you need A level Maths. Then looking at second and third year a lot of the economic geography modules they require or strongly recommend that you’ve taken the macro and microeconomics modules. Now big issue is I don’t have maths A level I realised I liked economics way to far into AS and now I’m quite worried they wouldn’t let me apply to these modules in year one. We do a but of stats in bio and geo and I could try learn A level maths calculus and stats myself in the summer. Do you guys have any tips on what to so? Or should I just give up on the economics thought all together.
LSE has micro & macro econ modules available to students on the Geography degree, inter alia, which do not require knowledge of calculus. Look up EC1A5 & EC1B5.

In case you didn’t know, there’s a strong emphasis on maths & coding in nearly all LSE degrees so anything that helps boost math skills can only benefit you in the long run. Maybe take a MOOC?
