    First of all, I'd love to be a Commercial Pilot but obviously I need something to fall back on and a Business kind of route would be the thing I would do if all else failed.
    ...And before anyone mentions, certain A-Levels such as Physics and Maths are not necessary to become a pilot. I've been doing my homework for over 2 years now and all is needed is lots of $$$$ (D:)and a couple of IQ points. Basically, all I need really is 2 A-Levels in anything. Sooo...

    I was thinking about doing

    • Economics OR Business Studies
    • Computing OR ICT
    • Geography
    • Physics

    I had previously thought about Maths, but I think having it as a whole A-Level, I'd struggle with the work and revision load. I'm not bad at Maths now, I just wouldn't like to do an AS in it, even though I know there is Maths involved in some of the subjects I'm wanting to choose anyway.

    Also, I'd probably drop Physics at AS.

    Just wondering what your thoughts and opinions were and if you had any advice to offer?

    Thank you!

    Economics is seen as having more prestige than BS, but you may really dislike it and be demotivated... perahps you could check the specifications and see which you think you'd find more interesting?

    I can't say that I know much about computing/ICT
