    I am applying to Warwick, York and Edinburgh for Business related courses.
    I am taking Maths, Welsh, Religious Studies at A level and Gov and Politics at AS. Trying to decided whether to take Economics or Business at A level. I have had a look at the specifications and I prefer Business but I've heard from tsr members that it's useless. I'm a little confused and would like it if someone could try and sway my decision. Thanks

    Economics >> Business Studies but if you think you'll enjoy Business more then go for it!

    economics is more confusing with muchhh more content and its much more difficult you basically have to just know your 300 pagetxt book inside out and some essays off by heart

    Economics is interesting and very useful for understanding how the world works, especially at the moment in the current economic climate. By studying Economics, you will be able to apply your knowledge to your real life - something which not many A level courses can boast of! I haven't actually studied Business Studies myself but, as I understand it, it's generally considered to be very boring and irrelevant, but quite easy, particularly in comparison with Economics.

    Of course, being the more traditional subject, Economics is also better respected by Universities but I don't think you would actually significantly hinder your chances of doing what you want to by taking Business Studies, provided you do well. At the end of the day, do whichever one you think you'd prefer. No one can tell you which that is.

    Economics of course, even though it's my worst subject!. :teehee:

    Tbh, Economics is well respected whereas general studies isn't. :p:

    I think the above poster meant Business Studies rather than General in context.

    But they're both not that respected anyways, so I reccommend you take Economics.
