    The AS content was quite easy despite not knowing any economics beforehand. I just started Year 13 and can already see that it's more in-depth but I still think it's straightforward. I would be worried if I was struggling seeing as I'm applying for economics at university.
    Yeah! I started fast-track economics at the beginning of the month and the AS stuff does look easy ^_^ I've just finished theme 1 and starting theme 2 within the next couple of days.

    Business Studies is taking me longer however... there's so much content.

    Ahh, where are you thinking of applying?

    Cambridge, Warwick, Durham, Bath and Nottingham.

    I'm not expecting to get into Cambridge but I'll regret not applying.

    Alright thank you. Does economics have a lot of writing? I'm not an essay person
    At AS and A2, there are still 25 markers in both. Economics does require a good amount of writing i've found

    Nah, give biology no thought if you know it's not what you want to do. Don't let your other grades suffer. Only try in bio if you know you have the time.
