Hi, I'd like some help about whether to choose economics-
-Is it a soft subject? I know it's not as bad as business studies, photography etc. but is it as good as geography, history or chemistry? I'd like to study Computer Science at cambridge so really don't want to make a bad choice here. (My other three choices will be maths further maths and physics)
-Anyone taking economics, do you enjoy it? Is it interesting and challenging, do you learn just obvious things that help you understand news reports or do you learn difficult stuff too?

I do business and economics and business is so much easier! Economics is a harder subject as some of the areas can become quite complex but I personally love it!! I was unsure about taking it at a-level but now I am going on to do it at university. Economics is regarded as an academic subject as far as I'm aware, hope that helps

Hi there, I'm currently studying Economics and it is by no means an easy option. I can see you are mathematician, therefore you might be somewhat disappointed that at A-Level there is very little maths involved except very basic stuff e.g elasticity and index number etc.
Whilst economics isn't strongly related to computer science, the though process used in economic theory is similar to maths. Hope that helps !!
