    Government & Politics, economics, maths and physics. Plan to drop government and politics after AS though because of the poor career prospects.
    That's exactly what I took this year!! : D I'm dropping politics too xD I found it really hard, but very interesting. Good luck

    I am doing Physics, Technology, Maths, German (being half-German ) and an EPQ for my A levels at my current school Lancaster Royal Grammar School (Requires 7 B's). I aspire to be a aeronautical engineer and my current choices of English Uni's I might do are Leicester, Imperial or Loveborough. However I might also go to Uni in Germany since I can speak fluent German where the Uni's are also renowned internationally and its free or dirt-cheap.

    I'd do French - it's always good to have a foreign language!

    You're right about the bio without the chem.

    Economics is absolutely fine without maths, there is none involved at all.
