    If you enjoy it then might as well get a good qualification out of it.

    Good luck

    I have to slightly disagree that the subjects aforementioned are the best if you want to do Economics.

    As long as you have a good set of traditional subjects, including Maths, you've got a decent chance of studying Economics at a top institution. Certificating A-Levels in subjects such as History, English Literature, Economics, Further Maths and the sciences are just bonuses to your application! There isn't a particular combination that'll increase your chances, if anything, the above subjects are slightly narrow in my opinion.
    Yeah I know :P Sorry OP I was just joking, listen to what this guy says

    That is actually quite common. It has happened to quite a number of students in my year.

    A lot of people got Us in core 1? You serious?
    It's basically GCSE...
    Yeah, same in other schools nearby too supposedly.

    I personally don't see how - I thought it was easy but obviously a lot of people find it hard.

    YOu should take maths if you want to keep your options open when deciding university course...

    If you don't enjoy Maths at all, then you should drop it...
    i dont think you should take it if you dont enjoy it, even if you want to keep your options open. it has been proven that if you enjoy a subject, you will automatically do better in it.

    (which is probably why i am failing english |

    What if you enjoy it, but are still awful at it?
    Hmm. In that case you can still do it, provided you are willing to put in some extra effort to stay on top of the work.
