Ok so I’m in year 9 right now and am having to think about what GCSEs I’m going to take and am in the middle of a massive mind kerfuffle,bit melodramatic but that’s me! At my school you have 4 options: a mandatory language, a mandatory humanity and two free options. I’m thinking about doing German, French, History and Geography and want to go on to study Maths, Further Maths, Physics, French and German at A-level, and then Economics at university.But the problem is that I don’t know if I should change that to swapping one option for Business Studies at GCSE and then Economics at A-level, you have to do Business Studies at GCSE to do Economics at A-level at my school, because it would be better to have actually done the subject rather than read about it and be interested, what would obviously show an interest and commitment to the subject, but then I would have to swap it for something else and I thought that I should do both Geography and History because they both are kind of linked with Economics, but I don’t want to get rid of a language, because I find them to be my joint second favourite subjects (after maths). Then with A-level I will once again have to scrap a language or Physics, which will apparently be detrimental to my Maths A-level because it’s like half of the course, one of my sister’s friends does maths A-level without Physics and is getting Us. I know I have to do Maths A-level for an Economics degree but that’s the only requirement so I have no idea what would be the best path. Aaaaaargh! Any help or advice will be much appreciated!
