    I'm in a similar situation, I wish I did English literature. I'm just reading more to balance my studying

    For business, I guess you could take an interest in marketing etc, and of course watch the apprentice! Is it that you regret the subjects that you have picked, or that you want to take business as well?

    same here omg i was persuaded to do further maths and chemistry because business and politics arent valued and i do maths and economics and wanna do economics at uni hence i acknowleged that they r stringer subjects but its better to get A in business than C/D in chem and further maths

    meh.. I'm doing maths, econ, computing and further maths.. not really enjoying any of them tbh (maths and fm are bareable but the other 2 i really hate).. I would've rather done something I enjoy that could've been more laid back and something that I actually liked revising for which was chem ._.

    You guys should have done better research and actually took the time when deciding things that would determine the course of your life.

    That said, there is a degree of flexibility for you guys.

    we're doing S2 and D1 in further, and S1 in normal so I'm praying I can scrape an A (apparently s1 and s2 are reasonably similar and s2 is a little short imo so hopefully i can wing it lol)

    OP probably did the most research out of anyone on TSR before picking their AS subjects! They certainly started the most A-level threads last summer - Don't you recognize that username?!

    Why don't you just drop Chem so you can focus more on FM/Eco?

    You've still got 6+ months to improve before exams start Very few people manage to do well in mocks at this early stage of the year...Though, you would have more time on your hands to practise by dropping one of your subjects, and practice is key esp in subjects like FM.

    If you do fail it, then you could always fast-track an easier subject alongside your A2s next year. If you like Eco and normal Maths then Business/Statistics/Accounting/Use of Maths shouldn't be too demanding
