Economics at Cambridge is divided into Part I (first year) and Part II (second and third years). Part II is highly mathematical but Part I is self-contained and can make a good preparation for other subjects such as Law, Sociology and Social Anthropology (under HSPS), Philosophy or Theology. A transfer to Management Studies is possible for the third or a fourth year of study. All transfers depend on performance and the availability of spaces.
Highly Desirable: Further Mathematics (including Statistics rather than Mechanics modules), History and Geography.
No written work required.
All applicants are required to take the pre-interview written assessment for Economics at an authorised centre local to them (for a lot of applicants, this will be their school/college). The assessment will consist of Problem-solving/maths MCQs (80 minutes) and Data response/comprehension (40 minutes). For further information on the assessment format, please view the entry requirements tab on: http://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/economics.
