    Hey everyone,

    I want to do Economics at university, going for top 20 universities in the league tables (particularly like Surrey); I did Maths, Business Studies, Economics and Physics for AS but I got ABDD so I retook and have been predicted A* (Economics), A* (Business), and A (Math), next year I will be doing just A2 Math as I took my A2 economics and business this year since my college won't be teaching the old spec after. I was just wondering am I at a disadvantage for taking Business Studies and Economics together when applying to university for Econ - if so should I take a fourth A level with A2 math like Sociology or ICT (my college offer a One Year program)?

    Also, how are Surrey and Kent for Economics?

    Any help/tips appreciated.
