    I already posted that 2 minutes before you mentioned it

    Perfect subjects? I originally chose full Further Maths as I was thinking of Cambridge, LSE and UCL but now I'm pretty sure I'm applying to universities which don't really put so much of an emphasis (hopefully still a bit though) on F Maths!

    Aha, what could possibly be improved on out of those 5 subjects? In my opinion that's the best you can get.

    Yeah it could boil down to that debate. IMO Physics would be better as you already have German and Economics essay subjects. Anyway, let's not discuss that, it's depressing

    I dunno, with FM and normal Maths there would definitely be M1 and M2 in there somewhere meaning a very nice overlap with Physics. Also, compared to both German and Economics, I'd say History is more of a hardcore essay subject. I found Economics quite lightweight and formulaic compared to History which wasa nightmare. As for German, surely they don't expect you to right write pages and pages in a language that isn't your mother tongue. So yea, :P I'd argue that Economics (AQA at least) aren't proper essay subjects.

    Well... doing less subjects and thus, getting better UMS in each other subject for starters

    i study economics, maths, further maths and geography. i'm taking them all to a2

    i have 5 As, 3 A*s, and a B and a C at GCSE (this is like top 10 at the school i was at)

    i can't decide between economics and economics and maths combined.

    i am thinking of applying to Bristol, Bath, Warwick, Royal Holloway and, depending on results, LSE/UCL (ahh!)

    any advice? i am still totally unsure about everything and in a really vague place right now. it would be nice to stay close to london, where i live, but hten again, many of the universities here that i would like to go to are very hard to get into (especially with my crap gcse results and likelihood of me having a rubbish ps)!

    thanks
    From what I understand, if you would be interested in working in the City, the combination of Maths and Economics may seem very attractive. Have you got a career in mind?

    In terms of applicants to places, much less competitive (the ratio is almost 4 times better) but then again, applicants with languages tend to be usually quite strong. If I were to get an offer for that course, I'd be überglücklich!
