Most 50/50 combinations require A level grades of ABB (or equivalent). However, for combinations where the entry requirements are BBB for each subject, you will need to achieve BBB.

You will need to meet the entry criteria for both subject areas, including any GCSE requirements or specific additional qualifications. For example, combinations including economics require a minimum of a B in A level mathematics. Similarly, combinations including business require a GCSE level 5 or above in mathematics.

Studying two subjects at University really helped me prepare for life in my professional career. Throughout my degree, having to balance the workload of two contrasting subjects was both enjoyable and challenging and helped develop my time management skills. In work, it is very rare that you’ll have just one project to focus on, so being able to plan and prioritise your time well is crucial if you want to succeed.
