Not even a question, physics.

Yeah, as he said physics is the obvious choice. Unless you want to do Additional further maths.

'im obviously gonna get 2 A* for maths and further maths' - Lol I don't know how you came to this confident judgement already, just because you maybe breezed through GCSE Maths...

I'd consider myself including many others here strong mathematicians but whom an A* would be very challenging to attain since in order to achieve an A* for FM in particular, you need to be very thorough, articulate and presentable with your workings in addition to fully understanding the content at AS / A2 level which is a big step up from GCSE.

But as suggested above, perhaps Physics or an analytical subject such as Chemistry and maybe even Economics all complement Maths.

Good luck.

Why do people on here feel the need to be condescending/bring others down?

Shwansalah - you made a post earlier saying you're doing your GCSEs then you made another saying you had an offer from queen Mary for maths of AAB

Now your asking what a levels you should do alongside maths and FM

I smell a distinct whiff of bullsh*t

I'm just somewhat perplexed as to how a year 11 student can so assuredly claim that they will get 2 A*s at A-levels, particularly in two such demanding disciplines. In fact it's disrespectful to me and others whom are taking Maths and Further Maths, and are working very hard to achieve such a grade.

Being sarcastic is not the same as what he did. And it is fact that psychology is easy so you have no point.

They aren't that difficult tbh. You're upset that he maybe smarter than you? Get over yourself!

Physics, Philosophy or Economics sound like the best options as far as I'm concerned; they all lead to different, fulfilling areas of work where knowledge of mathematics can be very useful..

Economics is not easy and requires very little mathematics.

I'm talking about the careers which knowledge of economics can lead to, not the content of an A-Level in the subject. A-Levels are not an end in themselves.

Oh, and I was completely ignoring the "easy A-Level" notion - they are called critical thinking and general studies and are not accepted by universities for a reason. Neither physics, economics, or philosophy (my subject on top of maths and FM ) is easy, but they complement mathematical knowledge well.

'Mickey mouse'.

By the way, we are talking about Economics A-Level as a supplement to Maths and FM, not an economics degree. As a supplement, it could be very useful for a mathematically trained person in order to give them some application.

This doesn't "prove" anything. And I know that we are speaking of a levels but if you can follow logic, mickey mouse degree = mickey mouse A level. Is that too hard to understand?

It's fact? How can it be fact that a subject is easy when people have different capabilities? something you struggle in, someone else will excel in. Where did you get this 'fact' from? You don't even study psychology, so your point about the subject is invalid
