my idea is i love maths and physics so they will be no problem economics i was hoping would be easy so i could fly thourhg it or just do last minute revision also im interested in it and accountancy i have a great teacher for that .

I know im worried though i have taken too much on ones plate !! although in saying that im a 1/3 of the way through the AS maths sylabuss already just by teaching myself !!

plus from what i gather AS level is supposed to be easier than A2 level !!

but thanks for your support guys much apprecaited

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 !!

your right maybe i shouldnt do economics !! i have already signed up for phyusics maths and accounting i am kinda scared now that im going to fail all of them i may have taken on too much risk. but in saying that i can always retake one level and then get a beter grade later !!

yeah i think i may stick with accounting, maths and physics ! oh decisions, decisions !

If youre a coherent waffler then you'll be fine. Once you grab about 40 key topics, then they all link up and make sense. So much eaisier than busisness studies where verything seems abstract.

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?

I would like to do a quantum physics or astrology degree in the future economics may be a bit to easy or maybe to much finance related with the accountancy which is kinda boring and not really challenging sometimes !!

yeah real bummber i gotta keep the accountancy !! although im hoping i can do it in 6 months take my exam in december and then concentrate on the other 2 as im quite experienced with the accounts !!

but then the other problem is that they dont do economics in the evening only physics so i would have to distance learn it !!

but from what i could gather economics and biology appear to be the easier of the A levels but im not interested in biology thus i was hoping economics i could do and my interest alone would be enuff to spur me on !! and being quite easy one wouldnt have to spend so much time on it !!

in saying that its £300 odd quid to learn it !!

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

ah. I guess go for physics ;-) Economics wouldn't be that important, I just thought it would go better with the subjects you were doing if you wanted to do something financial-related

I totally agree with you it is better for finance i think but physics is better i think in terms of job prospects !! and yeah as above i will be doing an accountancy and finance degree aswell even though its going to be pretty boring but the phyiscs degree should be nice

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.

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.
