    I'm applying for college and I'm very stuck on what to choose. These are the things that I'm good at:
    Maths
    English Lit & Lang
    Biology
    Psychology
    History
    Business Studies

    Right now, I'm about 75% sure this is what I want to do but I want to keep my options kind of open. I want to know if English Lit, Psychology, Biology (just because I like it) and something else as an AS would be OK?

    Add Maths or Business studies and it would be perfect.
    Good luck

    How about Economics?

    I'm good at Maths right now so they entered us into Further Maths (which they claim is the gap between GCSE and A Level) and I found it quite difficult and I got a C the first time we did an exam so I just dropped it on Friday because I didn't really want the excess stress just to get a C or possibly a B at the end of the year.

    I'm doing Business Studies now and my teacher said I shouldn't have chose it because it's too easy for me and something like Economics would have suited me more. They say Economics is difficult but I know I'm ready to put in the work. I would do Economics as AS if I chose it but I'm just scared of choosing Maths and finding it too difficult or doing Business Studies when I have to opportunity to do something more "respected".

    Maths is the most "respected" anyway and "crucial" for many courses.
    Your teacher knows you better, and the advice you got is very fair.
