    Okay so I'm in year 11 just finished my GCSE's -- well 3 exams left. When I'm older I want to go into investment banking hopefully in the USA as the UK bores me (sorry) 😂 I want to take maths at uni by far my favourite subject however I'm sort of getting back into wanting to do Astrophysics at Uni because it interests me so much -- so I don't know if I should go for the money (banking) or for job satisfaction (astrophysics). Anyway to the real dilemma, my current A level choices are Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Economics however I'm thinking now whether i should take Economcis or Chemistry -- these two would obviously be AS level so dropped after the year. If anyone can advise me that'd be great-- basically I haven't took economics at GCSE so I know barely anything about it apparently this writing based - as far as chemistry apparently it's one of the hardest science and I defiantly find chemistry and biology equally boring at GCSE 😂

    For investment banking, both of those will suffice, it barely matters. I'd say pick Economics purely based ob the fact thqt you find Chem at GCSE boring. You wouldn't want something that bores you at AS. For Econ, it'll take a while to get the hang of everything but once you do its smooth sailing*

    Definitely take economics, if you find chemistry boring at GCSE then you'll struggle at AS to keep interested
