    I am currently confused by whether I should take Maths in A-level. Is it ok if I didn't take Maths? (My maths sucks) I am going to pick History, Economics, Chinese Language and English Language in my A-level. I think I am going to pick law or translation in university.

    Don't want to sound like captain obvious but how much advanced maths will you actually be doing in a law/translation degree?

    Have a look on some unis websites to see what exact A-levels they want for thier degree, i think you should be ok with your degree choice but its good to check incase theres something you didnt think of. However though i think economics has quite a lot of maths in it so mabey think about that if you really dont like math.

    According to my understanding, it's actually not nessisary to have math. But I wanted to know will it be better if I have math...

    If you are going to choose law to do at University then Maths is not a requirement, however it can help you as it is highly regarded by Universities. I am pretty sure there is no subject requirements at all for doing Law at Universities, but doing subjects like History and English Language/Literature will help you, economics too.

    Translation I can not help you with, sorry.

    Maths can really help students who are looking to go into Law. Sure they may not be using algebra and sin, cos and tan for their Law course, but taking Maths is highly regarded by Universities and shows the University that a student is good at problem solving and many other skills.

    Yup I agree with you. But considering my math is really not that good and I have almost failed all my maths exam in school, I think it's better if I skip math 🙈🙈
