    If you are going to do economics then you may do well to consider P1 to 6 and S1 to 6 (or you could substitute D1 for S6 as S6 contains coursework) because economics does have a high statistics content (to a high level as well), and having the ability to do the kind of statistics in the further statistics modules will make your first year a lot easier (at least on the maths side of the course). M1 would not be particularly useful for that course, and it is only a little more detailed than your GCSE physics course.

    lol... dude you like the 5's and 6's, dont ya?
    IMO P1-P6, S1-S4, M1 and D1 would increase anyone's chance of getting 2 As...
    or possibly M2 or D2 instead of S4...

    yes, but I'm more interested in what will help me with my Economics at a higher level, not really which are the easiest modules.

    The reason i like my 5's and 6's is that (aside from being interesting) they go in to much greater detail and to a higher level, and if your gonna be taking the subject (or a related subject) at university then being able to do level 5 and 6 modules will put you ahead of everyone else in that respect, and will greatly simplify the work you have to do.

    Also dont you take a subject because you enjoy it any want to learn more about it, and NOT to just get A's. That is the wrong reason to be taking a subject.

    If I were in Louise_1988 shoes I would rather have an A and a B and have done up to S6 and have a strong grasp of the statistics that I would be doing at university, than have 2 A's, yet only know up to S3.

    I would recommend (for someone going on to study economics) the following further maths courses, in order of preference. Definatly do up to P6 with the pure, as some of the more bizzare stuff (like matricies) is only covered in P6, and i believe matricies is useful for economics.

    1) P1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P6, S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6

    2) P1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P6, S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, D1

    3) P1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P6, S1, S2, S3, S4, D1, D2
