I enjoyed Economics A-level, but I don't like maths. What is the best course for me to study?

Question:
I enjoyed Economics A-level, but I don't like maths. What is the best course for me to study?
Answer:

If you have a strong aversion to maths, the best course would be business or politics or history. There is no way to avoid maths in economics. However, if you are willing to work on the mathematical aspects of economics you can be successful in any of our programmes. The core of Economics, Financial and Business Economics, and Political Economy is the same so dislike of maths is not a reason to choose between these degrees.
