    I'm doing Math,Business and Economics A-levels.But the Economics A-level is really hard and I probably wont even get a B.So I'm thinking of doing the A-level and AP Macro+Micro Economics.My school says they're seen as pretty equal. Will universities give me a choice say get a 5/4 in the AP or get a A/B in the A-level.My friends have told me they wont look at APs once u've got 3 A-levels.Is that true? :confused:

    AP's have UCAS points but not all AP's are created equal with regards to the number of points they get. Go look at the UCAS table to find out. AP's are divided into an A list and a B list. AP calculus is worth the same as an A at A-level but AP computer science is less points. Don't know about economics.

    Depends on the uni too, like for LSE I'd say no. Wasn't it something like 110 spots with 2000+ applicants?
