The sixth form im going to say:
5 A* - C GCSEs including a A/B in English, Maths & Economics.

Maths ive already got a B,Englisg im a 100% sure il get a B.But i didnt do economics at GCSE because our school didnt offer it to us so i done business studies at GCSE.Are they lilely to accept that instead of gcse economics in my case? The sixth fotm is Bishop Thomas Grant School or would be better off doing accountting?

Different Sixth forms may have different requirements but for me i needed a MIN B's in both english lit and maths and my sixth form didn't offer Economics at GCSE.

The course is also targeted at people who haven't been taught economics before, if this helps.

Because it's academically rigorous, whilst accounting is vocational.

This is mainly why.

Accounting is also considered a "soft" subject by many Uni's I wouldn't pick it for that reason.

I got 13 A*-C in GCSE's but only a C in business and a B in maths, they let me do economics a-level

Business shouldn't really matter, but usually a B in Maths should be enough.

From what I've been told from friends doing Economics it doesn't involve very hard maths anyway.

Maths isn't a big factor so I wouldn't worry about it. As long as you get a B in English you should be okay, mostly just work on your essay skills especially for A2
