    For your first point - possibly, but why is there such a high requirement? An A or B in either of the English GCSEs would be fine for economics at most schools. Talk to your sixth form about it.

    For the second - it depends. Mandarin grammar is easier than Japanese, but Mandarin speaking is (in my opinion, having studied both) harder to sound proficient in, and Mandarin doesn't have the basic alphabet (kana) that Japanese has. Also, which one are you likelier to work harder at, or are interested in? Do you like Chinese talk shows or anime? Can you figure out which one you're going to put more effort into? Both are really great languages (my bias is towards Japanese, though), and an individual would benefit from the study of either.
