im planning to do an economics degree (maybe economics & management/politics) at a top uni. I am very unsure of this combination of subjects as idk if the unis would like this combination. Please give me some feedback. thank you.
(i cant do further maths and physics even though this is a popular choice for those looking to pursue economics due to some issues)

If you can then do business rather than biology.

If you would like to do Economics at a top university, I would highly recommend you do Further Maths instead of Biology. Chemistry is generally more useful and having further maths will enhance your application as economics at university is hugely maths based.

I would usually recommend economics, maths and geography - further maths is NOT essential but it is obviously useful. At my sixth form so many people do both economics and geography, they seem to overlap a lot. But honestly, universities care more about grades than subject choice, as long as it isn't genuinely irrelevant subjects to economics. Anything you could argue that is linked to economics is absolutely fine - it's better to do that than to do subjects you think will look good and get worse grades

I would say do Further Maths instead of either Chemistry or Biology. Top universities usually see it as highly desirable. Also ignore The_JoKeR, do NOT do business. Top universities see it as 'soft' and usually don't even count it if you are already doing economics, as Economics as well as Business Studies is an 'illegal' combination.
