    tbh just because the grade boundaries are lower doesnt mean its easy to get into. LSE is very very competitive. also why did you chose Brum over Manc? i havent really been looking at the tables but from what i remember Manc is generally seen as more prestigious?

    They're both different degrees with different career opportunities.

    Can you expand? What do you mean "different" opportunities?

    I am aware Eco is slightly broader and leaves more doors open, but Notts>Soton?

    Well, for example, you wouldn't really be able to become a professional economist with FAM even though it's from Nottingham. Also, FAM would prepare you better for accounting whereas economics would prepare you better for actuarial (especially if you chose the more quantitative modules).
