    Hi, I'm currently studying AS maths, physics, biology and general studies ( I also dropped chemistry earlier in the year)
    When I started college I was keen on the sciences as I did we'll in them at school but after a few months of them at AS I couldn't stand them, and frankly found them quite difficult, hence why I dropped chemistry. Out of them all I now only enjoy maths and think I may do only well in that subject.
    Previously I wanted to be a dentist, which is why I took the sciences but now I've realised they aren't for me. So I was thinking of dropping physics, biology and general after getting the AS. To leave me with maths only at A level - but of cousre I knew this would leave me with one A Level instead of 3. So I am thinking of taking on business studies and economics after this year and taking them to A level ( I now want to go into banking or stock or something along those lines)

    However I'm not too sure if that's the best thing to do as that would leave me with 3 AS levels and hopefully 3 A levels, but will these effect my application to uni's ( hopefully finance degree) because of taking them after my first year and having 3 other AS levels? ( but surely it's better than taking the other two sciences further and doing awful in them right?) any advice ?

    The only problem might be that some universities prefer you to take 3 A2's in the same sitting. Or do you mean you will take business/economics in a single year?

    What sort of universities are you planning on applying to?

    Top universities wont like that you're only doing 3 AS subjects (they rarely recognize general studies) and they also don't like overlapping curricula. (Business Studies and Economics)
