    I am a student currently studying AS- level doing Economics, English Lit, Psychology and sociology. However, I want to do a course associated with business management, business and law, law(possibly), economics. Otherwise Accounting and Finance. For A- level(yr13), i definatley want to carry on socioglogy and psychology , however im not sure what to pick for my 3rd subject to carry onto next year. The thing is I am good at english, I can achieve a C grade.But economics will be much more useful especially when getting high payed jobs. But theres a catch, my economics teacher was awful and now being one month away from my exams my teacher hasnt been here for 2 months for whatever reasons (the college has failed to do anything about it). I am alright at economics , i can potenially achieve a C otherwise a D or maybe an E(obv dont want that).And also note that As-level grades dont count towards A-level.I am really unsure what to choose for next year. Lets just say the scenario was i picked up my grades in August and I got a C in english and a D in economics , What Subject would you choose. PLEASE HELP> THAT WOULD BE FANTASTIC.I am really leaning towards Ecnonomics. I do find ecnomics interesting and i dont mind english. WHat would you do ???
