My econs lecturer told me economics degree in UK, most of the classes are maths. calculus is a huge part of economics degree and he hated it.
p/s which is also part of the reason why he ended up as a lecturer.
Erm..economics-related job is a high-paid one?
I don't know about that but wish to know the approximate salary for a fresh graduate. I understand that a degree is just like a passport to get myself a job but about how much I can earn, I believe that it depends on ability too. @@
Yeap I agree with you, I wish to have a job that I am really passionate with. No need to become a great economist though.
I think I like mathematics and economics, somemore I prefer office jobs.

For Economics, im not really sure about the job prospects here, if you can, maybe you should also top it up with a finance apart from economics alone, as economics and finance would be just a perfectly fine combo for you to enter banking should you do in future.
After my SPM, I was in dilemma because I found that I like both science and business, so I couldn't make a decision between them. Finally I chose science stream in form 6, and studied economics myself, but after my stpm, I still cannot make a choice. @@ I like mathematics, economics and physics. But chemistry is really a no-no for me,haha,I can see the potential behind chemical engineering but it will not be my choice.
Thanks and I will consider to take up some optional modules related to finance and management.
