    Hmm right well I've pretty much decided, if my school let me do it, I'll ruin my summer, and I'll just get on with it and do it. Economics really does mean that much!
    Good Luck and don't take no for an answer!

    True and Manchester, Exeter possibly even Leeds. Think they would all want A at GCSE though.
    I have an A at GCSE, but I'm taking a huge gamble without matyhs aren't I. Leeds do ask for maths I think, and anyway, I guess I'd rather grasp maths this year and have a rubbish time now though having to take extra maths classes at uni and ruin my time then...

    Just do AS, if you want to do the full A-Level go for it, but it would be a hellish summer. AS would be fine for a joint honours.
    You can do Applied Maths AS aswell, not sure what it is really but sounds like it might be useful for Econ. Perhaps more than an ordinary P1/S1 type AS level.

    Thing is your going to need an A or B in maths aswell for it to really count at most places, so its gunna be tough but I'm sure you'll do it.

    P1/P2/S1 would be best.There would be little point in doing mechanics, last time I looked velocity wasn't part of the economic course.

    Lucky I chose S1+2 then, was literally a coin toss at the time.

    I can't really pick and choose though can I, I'm just going to have to do the syllabus?

    If you are studying the AS independently I don't see any reason why you can't pick which modules you want to do (IIRC only Pure 1 is compulsory for AS, the rest are optional)

    Yes but say she does P1/P2/S1, and then her A2 class does P2, she can't certificate an Alevel with two P2 scores! SHe needs to make sure she doesn't do any modules which her class decides to do for A2.

    Also, remember, they're switching over to the new system for next year aren't they? So she will *have* to do C1/C2?

    So I can choose? That seems ok then. I like stats the most, from what I can remember of maths anyway! Which are the best modules for me to choose then?

    I'm fairly certain you have no choice but to do C1/C2, and then the obvious choice for a third module is S1.
