    I want to do an economics and maths degree

    thinking of taking:

    Mathematics
    Economics
    Physics
    English Lit/Lang

    (going to tutor myself Further Mathematics outside school)

    also, im doing the welsh baccalaureate (its compulsory)

    the reason i cannot do f.maths in school is because it is not offered, so i chose lit/lang as a fourth.

    what is your opinion? think i should change lit/lang to something like chemistry or politics? should i definitely drop one after a year? Is it too much work? ( not like i can change that as everything is compulsory)

    Cheers in advance

    Thats a good choice for economics, but make sure you do well in mathematics and further mathematics, as economics isn't even needed for an Economics degree, but maths and further maths is.
    You could change history for English lit/lang if you think you would prefer it,

    You need Maths, Further Maths and Economics. Anything else is a bonus

    That seems appropriate.
    Literature/Language's alright, you have a science subject in there already (Physics) so it shouldn't matter. You've got a good balance of subjects.
    While it is not vital that you do A-level Economics to pursue a degree in it.
    Straight from the TSR wiki "A Level Economics is not a stated requirement for any university in the UK. However, it is advisable that you do study it if you intend to apply for the top courses as many other applicants will have taken it. Cambridge has noted that A-Level Economics is 'preferable' which is an indicator that admissions tutors at the top five are receptive to it."
