Our main recommendations are to take the Maths and Economics A-levels. The Maths A-level provides the best training for a University-level degree in economics. We have found that students with Maths A-level perform somewhat better in our programme than students without Maths A-level, even after we adjust for the overall A-level result.
The Economics A-level is helpful in enabling you to decide whether the subject interests you enough to study at University. After all, you will be spending three years of your life at University and it makes no sense to study something that doesn't interest you. Otherwise we recommend sticking to traditional A-level subjects such as languages, sciences, history, literature, and social sciences. However, each application is evaluated on its own merits and we will consider students with other combinations of A-level subjects.
