Taking both Economics and Business watch

    My school recommended to take only 3 subjects for A level, so I chose Further Maths, Economics and Business. Recently I've been wondering if this will be looked badly upon by Russell Group unis (doing a course such as Economics), and am considering changing Business to History or Physics, which I might not be as strong in.

    Would you recommend doing this to get to the top unis, or will I be alright as long as I get good grades?

    Sorry, Maths and Further Maths. So I've undermined my own point...

    But yeah, are they too similar?

    Dont worry, Economics and business are not that alike in my experience anyway. Uni's may or may not look down on you, they didnt for me so dont worry too much

    Yes
    Yeah they're pretty similar, if it was me I'd ditch Business and pick one of the other subjects that you suggested...(go for history, then you'd do the same AS subjects as me )

    I applied for decent uni's (safe options).... Kent and Leicester were my highest choices but i went through adjustment and Unis such as Nottingham were giving me offers and yes i did both at A2.

    I applied for Accounting, Finance and Economics, Economics (BA), Accounting and finance (x3)
