    I've heard business studies is a soft subject but if you're not bothered by that then your a levels are fine

    Swap business for further maths, re for physics and economics for chemistry. Also take additional Furher maths for kicks

    I'm not too sure, I think you take economics first year then business the second year as an accelerated course if so I would have to choose something else which I'm struggling to do

    Yes they are good but I think that RE does not fit with the general trend. To be honest, I can't say much.. I'm taking Biology, Maths, Spanish and Computing.

    My school (two years ago) did not allow it. I took econ at the end.

    What do you want to do at university? What are your aspirations? Personally not sure if RE links well and isn't really a highly desired a level. Still the maths business economics are good for a range of things. Maybe further maths if you're up to it or a science?

    Is there a massive step up from GCSE to A level maths? In my latest mock for maths I got an A am I capable? I don't know what else to take instead of RE I'm not too keen on anything else.

    Business and RE aren't facilitating subjects so they will limit your university course choices. Maybe switch one of them to a different subject. If you want to do economics/finance at uni, maybe consider doing further maths or another quanititative a level like physics.

    Well what sort of degree/job are you look to do after 6th form/college? This should be what determines your A level choices instead of what other people label as good or bad A level subjects. Someone going into Politics might have something like Economics, English, History and Politics. Someone going into Engineering might have something like Maths, Further Maths, Physics.

    What do you plan on doing?

    I personally do not know but I can assure you this.. No one is incapable of achieving what they want. With hard work and extra dedication and effort, you can do anything. Personally, I find A-Level maths a little easier than if I was with a different teacher. I am in top set and we have finished the syllabus so we decided to cover a little bit into A-Level Maths (we covered integration and differentiation). To sum it all up, you can do it if you set you mind to it.

    No one is incapable.
