    Hi, I'm in AS year, taking Intense Maths, Biology, Chemistry and physics. Next year I plan on definitely taking Further Maths and Chemistry. I'm really intereested in taking Actuarial Science and Uni recently as my new home tutor tells me the prospects are brilliant and it's one of the careers. I'm predicted A's for everything at AS apart from Physics which is at a B.

    This is my question?

    How much of a chance do I stand of getting into Actuarial Science without economics? Should I take AS Economics or History in my A2 year to improve my chances? Would it even matter considering that it would only be at AS level and not the full A level.

    Thanks in advance .

    Okay I get the message, I'm an idiot! Stop neg repping me please!

    Listen, economics at A level is not a requirement for Act Sci at university, infact Further maths isnt even a requirement I wouldnt worry about taking up economics at all, at uni they will teach bog standard basic economics im micro and macro. Yes economics might be benefitial! For me it would have been a bit, but its only required for CT7 exemption, par that its not enitirely useful, as opposed to say Further maths!

    No I wouldnt worry, I would however concentrate more on Fmaths, because in first year they tend to teach further maths A level content quickly, and knowing it eariler will give you a boost!

    Competition isnt tough to get, par maybe LSE!
    not really about competition, but more about the actual work as its tough!
