Help with what I should drop for A2? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey guys would really appreciate some advice

    Yesterday I got my AS Results, I got AABC in Eng Lit, RS, Economics and Maths respectively. These results were expected given my poor preperation for the latter two.

    In Maths I got an A in S1 but a D in C1 and C in C2, the D a result of cockiness in thinking C1 was easy so didn;t prepare for it properly and the C2 result was laziness.

    Prior I assumed Economics could have been a C as well, instead I got 146/200 UMS so I am 6 marks into that B. I want to do a Politics degree at Uni, possibly dual honours with Philosophy and I was wondering what would be best to drop. Econ or Maths?

    I didn't enjoy Economics that much to be honest and perhaps slightly prefer Maths, but it is difficult to decide what to do, and what would be preferred by unis to be taken to A2. I assume Maths.

    My two choices now are to : drop Maths and smash Econ A2 to get an A/A* there.
    OR to drop Econ, retake C1 and C2 and smash Maths A2.

    \What should I doo?
