At the moment I am doing 5 a levels and I want to drop one but I'm not sure which... I am doing maths, further maths, economics, english and spanish and I want to do either law or economics at uni.

Which do you think I should drop?

I would say drop further maths. If you do economics at uni you will need maths (at least for most unis), and economics would obviously be useful. If you do law most, if not all, unis will want you to have an essay-based subject so you should probably keep English. Spanish would be useful to have for either because languages are highly valued by unis for any course, as well as by employers.

But ultimately I would say take the ones that you're going to get the best grades in. If you're equally good at all of them then I think further maths would be the best one to drop, but if you're much better at maths than you are at Spanish then drop Spanish.

Hope that helps

If you want to do Economics, you definitely should not drop Further Maths.

Are you doing English Language or English Literature?

I'd probably recommend dropping Spanish. If you are undecided on whether to apply for Law or Economics, I think dropping Spanish is the most sensible thing to do.

Drop further maths if you study law, Spanish if you study economics.

Thanks for the help everyone
I think I'm going to drop Spanish as it is the most difficult out of all my subjects!
(Doing English Lit by the way )
