    I've just entered Year 11 now, with A's and B's in year 10. I want to go and study Economics at Warwick University where hopefully I can pick up a few internships and go into investment banking. To do this, I am not sure what A levels to take, I need AAB to get in but not sure what to do, also I entered Year 11 with my Economics at a B/C grade, will this be good enough for me to get into university?

    Thanks in advance

    Warwick requires A*AAb with A*AA at A2 and a B at AS. If you take FM you'll be needing four subjects at A2 at A*AAA.
    I'm guessing you're referring to your GCSEs? You need to clock up the A*s at GCSE this year (at least 4-5 A*s to give yourself a hope) as Economics is tremendously competitive and they only take the brightest. Build up an interest in the subject and achieve straight A's at AS. Then you may have a chance.

    the only thing essential in most if not all economics degrees is maths A LEVEL. u dont need economics a level but it is useful. if i was u id take(at a level) maths and 2 other subjects. perhaps one of them, if you dont wanna do economics, could be business studies?

    He'll need further maths to have a decent shot at Warwick to be honest.

    LOL, i mean, you're in 11, how are we able to predict whether you're going to get into warwick or not?!
    work hard for your GCSEs, try to get at least 5A*s, A* obviously in maths.
    chose academic subjects for your alevels! definitely maths and further maths, combined with something like history?
    get some relevant work experience.
    good luck, and don't stress out.
