I am hoping to do accounting and finance at uni, and was wondering if economics was necessary or not

So far I am definitely doing Maths and Chemistry at A-level but I'm stuck on the other two. I am thinking about English Lit and Economics, but will they be useful at uni?

All opinions are welcomed

Thank you

Hi, I am going to do accounting and finance this year myself. Some universities post a list of subjects they want or don't want if you try and find it.
Economics is helpful but not necessary, as you do study economics modules as part of the degree. However, not everyone will have studied it and they should start from scratch at university. Economics is a well liked subject by universities along with all your other options. Provided you get good grades the universities will really want you.

Okay, thank you

If you don't mind me asking, what a-levels did you take?

All you need is maths to have all options available to you

Economics is definitely not necessary
