Should I chose Economics or Maths A-level ? :SWatch
1. You know you have natural ability (regardless of your peer group) an A* is stella grounding!
2. Maximises potential courses post sixth form - you could still study Economics at University but not vice versa
3. Maths is logically
4. Balances your options - 2 arts and 2 science
Why choose Chemistry? If I were you, I would choose English Lit, History, Economics and Mathematics. Chemistry won't really help with any of your uni options, and plus, most chemistry students want to either get into Medicine/Dentistry or some science based subject such as Pharmacy. I'm just saying this because Chemistry looks really odd from the other three choices.
I am a bright student currently in year 11 and am really looking to keep my options varied and broad. I am currently thinking of taking English Literature , History , Economics and Chemistry , I have studied all of them before and get A* in them all apart from economics which I have not studied. I am not sure about choosing between Economics or Maths and which would set me up to better choices. I can find Maths interesting ,but now maybe whether it is due to the teachers, the syllabus or myself it has become boring. I achieved an A* in maths GCSE in year 10 but am unsure of whether to pursue it because my ability is not as high as other students. I wan't my options to allow me to pursue a lot of things, and which would be better to do this? I would like to be ABLE to study subjects such as Law , History , Sociology , English Lit etc. in Uni so which would be the best? Because of my ability I am aiming for universities such as Oxbridge and other high rankers, which would they favour more? Or should I pick a completely different subject? Please Help.
