    Maths: C1 C2 C3 C4 M1 D1

    FM: M2 FP1 S1 S2 FP2

    These are the intended modules, but what should be the 6th in the FM?

    I was thinking of doing S3/D2/FP3.

    Can anyone also tell me, is it better to do M3-M5, S3-S4 FP2-FP3 at the same time, I mean like should I do FP2 and FP3.

    I don't suppose it matters when D2 is done?

    Thanks

    Decision maths is a strange module, and will be completely scrapped in a few year - it won't be that useful for you. The obvious answer is statistics, which will indeed be of use on an economics degree. Alternatively, FP3 is a really interesting module, which supports FP2 as well as C3 and C4, and will also be beneficial for the more theoretical sides of an economics degree.

    I would choose FP3, but you can't go wrong with S3 either.

    Thanks for your advice, would I be at a disadvantage in terms of my application without S3?

    It really doesn't matter what modules you do tbh (since most unis know that it isnt students choices to decide all their modules)

    You shouldn't be disadvantaged - universities will reteach those modules anyway (at a very accelerated pace) and most students don't have a choice of what modules they take. Offering up to S2 will be absolutely fine.

    I intend to do AFM the year after, seeing as for obvious reasons for Econ I want to do S2, and have to do FP2 and FP3 - it would probably be better to do FP2, due to the overlap would FP3 be better.

    Or do you know if S3 and S4 overlap hence why it would be better to take them both at once

    If you want to do economics at uni then I would suggest taking FP2, FP3, as many stats modules as you can and minimum decision and mechanics. M1-2 is easy but afterwards it gets hard and all stats modules are easy. D modules are pretty useless but easy.
