    Hi, I really need advise on what to choose for my A-level subjects. At the moment I am not sure about a particular field that I want to go into, however I have narrowed it down to engineering, economics or finance & accounting.
    I'm going to choose Physics, Mathematics, Economics and Accounting. Is this a good combination? Or should I choose Futher Mathematics rather than Accounting?
    Thanks in advance!

    I'd leave out accounting

    Yes, do this and you have a strong combination for all those subjects.

    Further maths looks a lot more impressive to universities than accounting would do. But go with what you would enjoy, as this combination with physics too might feel like way too much maths for some people!

    I'm doing AS Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Economics.

    I can tell you now that further maths is no harder than normal maths.
    Economics is extremely interesting, my favourite subject I think.
    Physics is tough but really really useful.

    I'm not too sure what I want to do in the future but it'll either be Economics/Finance or Mechanical Engineering.
