I want to study Management, which requires ABB
My grades are:
Business (B) - Definitely carrying on
English (B) - Definitely carrying on
Economics (C) (janD juneC) (sending off for remark, close to a B)
Geography (C) (janD juneA)
Looking at grades alone, i would say drop economics. BUT, economics is the more relevant subject to management, but it's my hardest subject and i may not do that well in it even if i do get remarked to a B. On the other hand, i really dislike Geography, but i'd be fine to do it if i had to for the grade. But geography isn't relevant to Management so could that put them off me? Or do they mostly care for the grade?
I really need help here please, i have until tomorrow to make my choice. This is very hard to do without knowing if my economics will be remarked to a B. Even if it does, my unexpected success in Geography is making me wonder if i should do that for the "safer" "easier" grade at the end i need for management.
Which subject would you recommend me dropping? Watch

A2 requires a bit more passion for Geography than you'd think. My friend was a geography student in a similar boat to you (disliked it but was doing blindingly well: A's in her exams). At A2, however, this changed. Your exam board may be different to hers, but hers required a lot of independent research time and fact gathering to even achieve middling C's. She started to fall behind because she couldn't fit all the extra Geography work in and didn't have the interest to do it.
I'm sure there are budding Geographers out there ready to disagree, but according to her it became much harder and independent (more so than the regular AS to A2 transition).
With this in mind, I would recommend you drop Geography. Economics is more relevant and if you enjoy it more, eventually that will show through.
But at the end of the day, it's personal preference to be fair.
