Why would you want to do another year of HS?

You could just do 5-6 years in college if you felt like it.

It's not too bad. I'm an economics major, and calculus is the highest level i have to take.

There's also economics statistics and things like that, but stats isn't too bad compared to the crap calc teaches.


I'm a junior, so I'm just starting to get into the 200-300 level classes. the work load is going to increase, no doubt. So maybe there is a lot more math involved.

Well considering this guy doesn't seem to have a very good average, I doubt he would qualify.

BTW what university are you going to, OP?

You can always switch programs in university. Honestly, everything that is taught in highschool can be learned outside it. Also, as stated, success in econ in based more on your math skills than your ability to understand the concepts.

I agree though, we need more info. What school and what program would you be able to go to?

I took econometrics my senior year and that was a pretty tough course, but other than that you never need beyond first year calculus in an undergraduate program. I hear any graduate studies in economics are practically all math though.

Laurier University and,

I did grade 12 accounting in grade 11 second semester, got a 98%, currently I have a 100% in business leadership pre-exam.

Both of those count to university.

I'm pretty good at math if i like the topic. I like algebra and things like that. I do plan on getting my masters, so I'll have to get my math skills up to par, for sure.

I'm taking econometrics this semester. I may send u a pm or two for help in the near future...haha
