    I need to decide on my 3rd A-level. I am going to do Maths and physics but I'm struggling with my 3rd A-level. But I have narrowed my choices to 2 options.
    Economics and Politics.
    So what would you recommend me doing (at uni I plan to do a physics, engineering or finance degree).

    Economics is pretty much just knowing the knowledge, applying it to case studies and analysing, There are loads of diagrams and formulas

    Is that a bad thing or a good thing?

    I mean, it depends, there are a lot of economic concepts you need to learn, and it is divided into macroeconomics and microeconomics. I think you should do some research into a level economics first.
    Are you doing business or economics at GCSE?

    Yes I'm doing business and economics for gcse and it seems pretty simple at the moment but I guess it would get a lot harder at a-level. I like the idea of government and politics more but I think i would do better in economics.

    I advice that you do what you feel most confident and comfortable in. Do something you want to do.

    Lol economics is a joke in terms of content. All the content is still smaller than one module in maths. You can learn it all in one month.

    Well at least for Edexcel.

    Also, do what you think you will do better in.
