    I have decide to choose Accountancy, Economics and History as A levels and I have chosen to resit GCSE maths in order to get a B. I wanted to choose Maths A level but chose History instead because I got a C in GCSE Maths. I have always wanted to do A level Maths so I thought I would resit GCSE Maths get a B in the first year of college with my other three A levels. Then in the second year I wanted to drop History pick up AS Level Maths (by then i should have B in GCSE Maths) and continue with my other two A Levels. Later in the third (an extra year) I wanted to continue on to A Level Maths and pick up History from AS Level and continue in the third year with two A Levels and then possible pick up a AS Level.

    I want to do all that because I want to either teach maths (primary/secondry level) or I want to become a Accountant. What do you all think is this frowned upon by universities especially the higher up they are in the league tables? Any advice would help.

    Would I just be better of doing my inital theree A Levels with no GCSE resits in order to achieve the career want?
