I did my AS with Business, Maths, Economics and ICT

I want to continue with Business as i want to do it in uni and i enjoy maths a lot however the problem is that i like ICT but don't like economics much so do you think i should leave economics or not

my predicted grades for AS levels by my teachers are

Business - A
ICT - A
Maths - B
Economics - B

Definatley stick with maths and business if you enjoy them. Economics is maybe regarded a bit more highly than ICT, but if you don't enjoy it there's no point in continuing it.

Perhaps wait till results day and see how you do because you can never really tell how you did on the day of the exam.

Hope it goes well

Ideally Economics over Business but seeing as you seem set on Business choose it. The two shouldn't really be done together.

Drop ICT and work hard with Economics next year.
Just to let you know that there will be a subsantial amount of economics in 1st year Management at university.

Yes but it will also be more difficult to get on to a top 10 business degree with Business & ICT as opposed to Business & Economics.

pari...follow your instincts, wait for results day because that is the decision maker, and nothing, not even your predicted grades should influence you in this matter. I did the same thing, i waited for my AS grades and then chose accordingly, because only you know what the subject is like and how you dealt with it.

Yes but ICT is far too long winded to be a back up! The sheer amount of work in A2 ICT could hinder the OP with Economics...

Drop the subject you least enjoy. But don't drop maths as it may be useful for business.

Sounds like a pretty good decision to me when it's your least favourite subject and also one of the likely Bs. If you're interested in business at university, economics AS would probably be a useful background, but I doubt it would be essential.
