    Well, I've posted numerous threads about help with A levels and guess what...I keep changing my mind!
    I've currently chosen:
    English Literature

    But I've been interested in an Economics degree and was wondering...
    What A levels would be best to study Economics (possibly with French) at a top 20 university? Should I study Economics (strongly considering) or should I study Further Maths, since I enjoy Maths, but I only got a B in the exam in November and don't get my re-sit results until April?

    Any help is highly appreciated .

    If I were you, I'd do Maths, Economics, French and then one of the other two you were considering If you've never studied Economics before, it'd be good to do it for A-level to make sure you enjoy it and want to do it at university. French and Maths are good for obvious reasons (you want to do Economics so Maths will be good for that, and you're considering French at uni so those two are no-brainers really) so then you can chose whichever you prefer out of English Lit and History
