    Depends what you prefer and what you're looking to do at university/as a job, but you might want to bear in mind that some top universities look down on business studies as a doss subject, so if you want to apply to places like LSE, it would be better to do economics.

    OK thanks, btw why do they look down on business studies?

    btw whats the difference between business studies and economics? which is harder? they are similar right? and also like whats the different jobs that business studies/economics degrees can offer?

    thanks for all your replys...

    economics is considered harder (not having done either myself though) and (i believe) a bit more marthsy. Its basically of more use for unis i would recommend an economics degree rather than business as business is almost a 'lower' version of economics. Any job in the city with economics.

    Because they're snobs :p: Lol I don't know really, they seem to think certain A-levels are easy options and unfortunately business studies is one of them. In theory that means economics is harder, but I've never studied either, so I can't comment.
