I downloaded it. The same problem still. Seems my system doesn't support MySQL or something is wrong with the setup.

Please which other SQL application can I use? I don't want to put my learning on hold because of this little challenge.

Yeah. Economics graduates are also encouraged. Anyone can apply for the programme. But they encourage you be proficient in maths, statistics, algebra, calculus and programming which is a necessary skill encountered in all financial engineering programme as you delve deeper to make the most of the programme and in writing the quantitative test. And those who usually graduate from these technical fields like engineering, computer science, physics etc are usually good in problem solving. And of course, it depends on how passionate and dedicated you are.
