Hello I want to study Economics at University, but I wasn't able to pick it at an AS level. I currently Study; Maths, Sociology, and Psychology. I'm on the waiting list for Economics, currently 7th, I was 8th but someone left today. The economics teacher said to be hopeful and that usually many students drop out/ go to other sixth forms. First week has finished and the head of Humanities seemed very doubtful and that chances of me getting in are slim. The majority of Universities, the ones I looked at, said that Economics isn't required at A-level but an A/A* is highly preferred in Mathematics. I was advised to study subjects similar to economics or what UNIs would like, such as; Government and politics, History and Philosophy. History and Gov&Pol are full and Psychology clashes with Philosophy. So my options are
1) Carry on with my 3 AS Levels: Maths, Sociology, and Psychology
2) Keep the 3AS: Maths, Sociology and Psychology and when I start A2 I should pick up AS Economics, Don't know if it's worth it though
3) Drop Psychology for Philosophy
4) Pick up Either AS English Language/Literature as a fourth subject
The economics teacher also gave me a folder with some Economics work, some induction crap too.
Any advice would be appreciated Many thanks
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
