Many Finance related courses require Maths either at A level or a specific GCSE grade, and although you may be able to find courses that don't, be aware that the course will include maths so think carefully about the reality of this.

For examples, have a look at any courses that appeal to you on these Uni websites and see what A level subjects they require or prefer - including any required GCSEs :
Undergraduate Courses, Degrees : Study : University of Sussex
Subjects - Courses - University of Liverpool

I cant lie, if you cant do A level maths, a geography degree would be your best bet (although sometimes you can do business management etc but unlikely). From geography (or any degree) you can go into finance (e.g investment banking). Investment banking is basically 50 percent powerpoints anyway (from what Ive heard)

I forgot to say as well. Many universities consider business and economics as one a level (so maye consider replacing business/economics)
You might find International Development interesting - this combines Geography and elements of Economics :
International Development BA | University of Leeds
Geography and International Development BA : University of Sussex

Yes thank you. I had looked at the course yesterday whilst trying to decide on my options and it looked quite nice (especially when considering the links between economics and development studied in geography).
Hi,

There's quite a few degrees you can do with those A-levels, it really depends on what interests you the most. Alongside, what job you would like to do in the future, after you graduate. I would recommend that you attend a few open days, once you have an idea of the course that you want to study, so you can find out more information about the specifics of it. As some courses will cover different modules and may be taught and assessed differently, at each university.

I have linked some of the different courses below that are at York St John, as well as the digital prospectus.


Digital prospectus | York St John University (yorksj.ac.uk)
International Business BA (Hons) | York St John University (yorksj.ac.uk)
Geography | York St John University (yorksj.ac.uk)
Economics | York St John University (yorksj.ac.uk)
Business Management BA (Hons) | York St John University (yorksj.ac.uk)
