When you choose your subjects for the first year of a levels, do you then drop one after the second year? Also I am thinking about choosing Business, Economics, It (ict) and computing. What do people think about these/ Are they good choices? Advice would be much appreciated.

Most people choose 4 as levels then do 3 of them to A level. What are you planning to do at university?

I probably wouldnt do ict AND computing. I would only do one of them. Then choose another subject in its place.

The combinations look unusual - how much cross-over is there between Economics and Business Studies, and between ICT and computing? Will universities accept these as four separate subjects?

There is a good summary of the differences between Economics and Business Studies here:

http://www.hmsg.co.uk/en/H_Econ02

and there was a thread about whether it is risky to take both business studies and economics at AS here:

why should nt i study both IT and COMPUTING. If you want a job using computers and web design and so on, then having both would surely be more help

There is an interesting discussion here (but from 2008):

http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/...d.php?t=735195

about these two A-levels. They certainly do not rule out doing both, but suggest caution in that some universities might not count the ICT A-level.

Im studying ICT at a level now and have to say its a bit useless unless your taking a directly related course at uni, if you dont see yourself doing it at uni I wouldn't take it

I wouldn't take Business AND Economics! It will confuse you so much

Neither would I take ICT AND computing since even though there isn't much cross over as such, they both are still similar to some extent.

If I were you I would take:

Business/Economics
ICT/Computing
Maths (if you want to do computing)
A essay/humanity subject to have a nice combination?
