    Hi guys! So I finished my AS exams ( chemistry, biology, history and maths). My predicted grades are AABB for AS. English is not my first language and I only came in UK 2 years ago. I choose this subjects because I wasn't sure what I want to study at university and also I read that you can study Economics with Maths A level. However, now I am pretty sure that I want to study Economics, but I am quite afraid that I can't get into good universities because I haven't taken Economics or Further Maths A-levels. Could you give me any advice of what should I do next to get into top universities?

    Well i don't know, but maybe you can over the holidays get an A-level economics textbook and try to understand some things? Then you can mention this independent studying on your personal statement. It should make you look very interested in the field, and I think universities might prefer that over formally studying it, since students tend to be better in fields they have genuine, independent interests in rather than studies they're taught formally at schools.
