    Either will do. I did the first with the addition of Chemistry (&French).

    You should do what you find interesting and what you will do best at.

    Whilst there is some history in the course at Cambridge, the lack of it will not affect your chances of an offer. Economics will be helpful preparation for interview although the A level is not much like the degree.They like high marks in Physics as it shows good analytical skills and it may help you do well in FM which is important. (I didn't even have an A* in History at GCSE.)
