    Biology
    Chemistry
    Maths
    Economics

    Would I stand a chance at getting into a top economics course with these A levels, assuming I get A's in them? I have good GCSE's as well.

    What do you honestly think?

    If youre smart enough to get straight A's at A-Level, including Economics and Maths, surely youre smart enough to work out whether those are the correct A-Levels to be able to do a degree in Economics?

    Many degrees require some very specific A levels, such as further maths for example. I couldn't find a list of requirements for all the economics courses, so I thought it would be quicker to make a thread.

    I did those A-levels, the answer is yes.
