is economics A level easy ??
ok heres my dilemma !!
i going to study A level
accountancy and work full time in september
now i would really like to do economics but im worried it maybe a little too hard or to much as my plate is pretty full at the moment!!
just wondered if you guys would recommend it alongside the above A levels
working full-time while going to school???
impossible to multi-task that in my opinion
Give up Physics and do Economics
oh i clicked yes because the course is easy but you ar working full time and doing 4 a levels - i just dont see it at all to be honest
Didnt even know they let you even do that many A-Levels part time, I though it was only 1 or 2. Just remember there are allot of prople who struggle with A-Levels full time, part-time its harder, keep your options to as few as possble and only what you REALY want to do!
yeah to be honest maths and accountancy is the main ones and physics and economics if i do econ will be secondary !! but im hoping i can waffle through the economics !! and im hopin the accountancy will help to back up the economics theory ish , yes i know its crazy but i cant afford to do a degree and A levels seems like the only option open to me !!
why on earth would you do physics with those subjects? Do you want to become a scientist? Otherwise just stick with economics then you got Economics, accountancy and Maths and that makes more sense right? Seeing as you are quite keen on keeping the accountancy?
Physics is a worthwhile a-level no matter what all your other A-levels are. I heard that physics is the most under-subscribed A-level and yet one that many employers are looking for
Most people do 4 A-levels in year 12 and drop 1 at AS to 3 to A2 level. So your choice would be what most people do. General Studies / Critical Thinking are extra and don't count in the 4. I'm concerned about working full time because it will mean that you won't be able to commit fully to your studies and could be hard around coursework / reular essay deadlines and exam / revising time. I think the maximum recommended hours working is about 10 hours per week. In terms of studying 4 and your concerns about studying 4 subjects, the workload is not too bad in AS. Believe me, doing 4 subjects (3 at a-level and 1 at AS) and General Studies is not easy! Maybe you could commit until half term and see how things go.
Which year are you in? Because that changes things somewhat
I nearly did AS economics. My businesss studies teacher was going to teach us qalongside our A2 Business classes. It was quite interesting but we didn't get too far because she was concerned thatsome of the boys ween't getting their ICT coursework done and didn't want it to be an excuse!!! AQA is good. I think my school said a max of 15 hours I think but said that it was better to do around 10 hours.
