    Basically, i did my first year of AS-Levels at my sixth form (English Literature, Maths, Business and Law). When i found out my results, i wasn't quite happy with them. Although i passed everything, i knew that i didn't enjoy them (except from Law) and was just memorizing everything for exams really.
    So, I've had a chat with my mum and she understands me, saying that i need to start at a new college/sixth form with A-levels i enjoy.
    I've chosen Economics, English Language, Sociology and Law.
    In the future, i want to be able to have a job in the finance sector. Particularly a Finance Manager.

    Are these A-levels suited to study accountancy+finance/economics at University?

    Thank you. I'd appreciate feedback a lot.

    HIGH end universities probably won't take you for Bsc economics, but others will with no problems except high A2 grades. E.g. A lot state AAB with Maths or AAA w/o.
    If your not aiming for the high end universities, you can scrape away into Accounting and Economics without maths however.

    Many good universities do not REQUIRE maths. E.g. Surrey do not specificy maths for accounting and maths is optional for economics there
