    Depends what you want to study uni, and/or what job you would like after A Levels!

    Hey all,
    I want to do an economics degree in the future. For a levels, am definitely taking maths and economics and probably politics too as it merges with economics really well. I'm looking to do a degree in economics where the course looks more at world issues rather than just looking at graphs.
    My question is, along with maths, economics and politics, what other a levels do you think I should take?
    I can choose a maximum of five however I'd prefer to do four but if you come up with a combination of subjects that suits five a levels, please do reply!
    Also, is chemistry a levels hard? And what about physics?
    Cheers

    It would be a good idea to take further maths as it complements the subjects you are taking well and it may help with your future career when it comes to choosing unis.

    otherwise, you could possibly take physics- to keep your career choices open and also to give you some change of mind to the other subject as it is more sciency.

    Personally, I am not enjoying physics but that should not put you off. It depends on what you like and what you can cope with.

    With chemistry, my opinions might differ to that of other peoples. I'm finding chemistry thoroughly enjoyable (ignore the fact that i sound like a nerd there ). It is majorly different to gcse chem because you go in to alot more detail in terms of atoms. There's a lot to learn but if you enjoy it then you should be fine.

    Also, with the subjects your planning to take its worth looking in to each subject quite thoroughly, to make sure you like the course and the board. And if you've looked at the syllabus beforehand it will help you later on in the year.

    hope you found that helpful

    My order changes quite frequently but atm it is:

    English Lit
    English Language
    Media Studies

    I know a lot of people seem to think media is easy (most of whom i'm assuming have never done it at a-level) but i'm really struggling with the theory side of the course!

    Hey.
    I have a unconditional for Economics at Aberystwyth in September. I'd probably recommend history, when I spoke to the professors at Aber they told me they valued it as it gives you an insight into the historical context of economic issues

    Thanks.
    Would you say English Lit is useful for economics? I'm torn because it doesn't relate to economics and helps you develop similar skills other subject do ie history.
    What do you think about this?

    Coincidently I also do English Lit! It's helped me out as it develops your analytical skills, but both history and english lit are very essay based subjects, if you can cope with that workload I'd say go for it and do something like Economics, History, Maths, Further Math/English Lit.

    Chemistry could be so much easier, sadly I just got unlucky and ended up getting two new teachers (as in first year of teaching, ever) who don't really have the best idea on how to teach me...
