    Personally I think history would be the better choice if you want to do economics

    Posted from TSR Mobile

    Both subjects have their links with economics. Depends where you wanna go to.

    I suppose universities may favour history slightly more since its a more intense essay subject starting from AS, but I think its a lot harder to achieve a good grade in history. But i dont think the difference is massively great in my opinion.

    I'd say history is much better for doing economics, but look at what the unis want. If you only want maths/economics A levels, then take the subject you prefer. For example the university UCL only requires maths and economics A levels, but check with the unis that you want to go to, and see what they say
