Hi Vicky,

Let me start by telling you a little on what Economics is all about and how is it linked with Math and Statistics.

Economics is a social science. What makes it different is its use of maths and statistics to prove theories and concepts while still incorporating other subjects, such as politics, philosophy and geography. It is basically a statistical data which needs computing to get results.

Thus to study Economics at the Undergraduate level math is compulsory.

Approach the University or college board, and if you are interested and feel you have the capacity, appear for Math as a subject separately, which will help you then secure admission in an undergraduate course specializing in Economics.

Though it should have been done earlier, but never-the less, if you could talk to the Undergraduate college you are applying to and before the end of the 1st year, if you could appear for the Math paper and clear it, then you very well can study Economics as a specialized subject.

Or else I feel disheartened to say, you are not eligible.

Wish you good luck....

Dear Aspirant,

Maths at 10+2 level is NOT compulsory for BA Economics. Not even for MA Economics in majority of Universities.

However if you are appearing for Delhi School of Economics, it may be compulsory. You need to check with DSE.
