    I was thinking of doing A-Levels in maths, chemistry, physics and business studies next year. I was just wondering if these are good a levels to have. Particularly as I hope to study economics or accountancy.

    I would replace Chemistry with Further Maths and Business Studies with Economics and then those subjects look a lot better.It is very useful to have studied both Maths and Further Maths for Economics.

    You do not need to study Further Maths for Economics, that is absurd.


    Your A-Levels look fine.

    Does your school offer accounting? or economics? because i would take one of those if you want to do that degree.

    Don't take Accounting A level as has been suggested, it would limit your options. Replacing business studies with further maths or economics would be very worthwhile.

    Economics or accountancy isn't offered. I don't think I would achieve a high enough grade in further maths to go to the universities I want to.

    Further Maths would be a more suitable choice than Chemistry or Business Studies. Having said that, there's no point taking it if you're not going to manage. Just be warned that the degrees you're planning to do are very maths heavy.

    Hello,

    your choices look good although I have to ask, why isn't economics one of them if you want to maybe do that at uni? But of course you don't necessarily need to have done economics at A-level to do it at uni.

    There is a variety of A Levels in there which would leave you with many options. It might be an idea to check with any unis you are interested in applying to, so you get an idea of what subjects / grades they require. Emailing the admission tutors is another thing you can do.

    Make sure you are comfortable doing the subjects you have chosen.
