Currently picking my options for sixth form and have chosen:

Business & Management (Cambridge Pre-U)
Economics
History
Religious Studies


Anybody have advice for these Alevels or any insight?

I think I will drop either History or RS for A2 - I'm hoping to do Business/Law UG courses at Russell Group universities e.t.c

Thanks in advance

EDIT: My CV (please critique) - http://rapidshare.com/files/439248056/CV_2011_TSR.docx

That sounds good to me! I don't know about the respectability of B&M (I know ordinary business is a bit iffy) - I'm sure someone else will come a long and know though

Would love to do Politics but it's not offered at our school :/ - thank you!

Has anyone done these A-levels - what are they like to study? workload involved?

Bit worried about History...

Don't enjoy Maths at all - why would I drop B & M, it's a brilliant course and will be useful when I do Business at university?

I would consider doing Maths if I wanted to do Accounting/Economics at university but that isn't the case - correct me if I'm wrong?

Mate you need maths.

Business/econ/maths/accounting all correlate and the better the university the more maths you will need.

That is fair enough. But, Economics and Business clash, as they follow a similar syllubus. The 'top' unis often blacklist that combination,so you're better of choosing one or the other.

They're good but might replace RS with Law if you're planning of doing it at uni

If I were you I would defo consider doing Maths to at least AS level- a degree in business/management is likely to be fairly quantitative. I understand that LSE want Maths beyond gcse level as their minimum requirement so if you are aiming at the top end of universities it would be advantageous. Also if you are considering law, many universities would like a science/maths subject to show variation.

Why would you say that? I heard it is blacklisted but there is no evidence to back it up? Why would it be?

Not really aiming at LSE, lower than that - Bath, Warwick, Lancaster e.t.c and especially the Business Administration course at Bath which looks attractive.

I really dislike Maths though, I will probably get an A/A* at it for GCSE but I really don't want to do it for AS?!

Law's not a good A Level. Even if one is planning to do it at university.
