    Hi everybody,
    I'm choosing my a level options at school and have a few mixtures of subjects which I really can't choose from:
    1. French German Biology Economics
    2. French German History Economics
    3. Language Biology History Economics
    I have no idea what I'd like to do at uni, at the moment I really enjoy languages and business studies, but a lot of people have said Economics is more challenging and is looked upon more favourably by universities. Thanks for all the help

    the 3rd option is a good mix

    Take Business Studies and you will thank me later. Do not take Economoics very essay based much harder than business I know because I take both. I wouldn't suggest taking 2 languages. I would also say take maths but I am quite biased towards that. It is a easy subject if you put the effort in. Language is good but if you are not fluent in it you may find it really difficult.

    I suggest Business studies, Language, History and Maths. Also depends on the board, I suggest looking at past papers.

    Doing Biology would keep your options wider for uni and it shows you can do problem solving and stuff which is perhaps less shown by the other subjects however it can sometimes be harder if you're only doing one science (or atleast this is what some of my friends have found) and people also doing something like chemistry often find it easier I cant really say much about the others other than unis love language so if you do two they'll love it and if you love languages then you should be able to manage doing two languages at once which some people struggle with just make sure you pick what you enjoy as that's what you'll do best in
