I'm about halfway through my GCSE's and still considering what I should do for my A Level's (I've applied for college and I got in, but I can still change my A Level's). I was thinking of taking:
My school doesn't have a course for economics, so will that affect my chance of passing at A level? Also, will these subjects have huge workload? I have heard that Chemistry is very hard (I like science and I'm predicted a B/A at GCSE) but if it just makes people miserable and the workload is enormous (I always do revision, but my memory is odd), I'll skip it.

Not doing economics at gcse will not affect how well you do at a level, don't worry about that
I don't really know much about computer science or economics at a level, but I do chemistry and can speak from experience that it does have a fairly high workload, but then again I really like it and enjoy the work we do. I would imagine there's also quite a lot of work for economics and computer science, but at a level there is for all subjects, a levels are a lot harder than gcse. My advice would be to do the subjects you like or think you will like, even if they're harder subjects it will be a lot more bearable if you're enjoying what you're learning. Don't just pick a subject because you think it might be easy because at a level there isn't such a thing as an easy subject and you don't want to be stuck doing something you don't like, when each a level subject takes up a large proportion of your time.
