    There are 4 a levels which i am considering (only going to pick 3 of them) :
    -Economics or Business Studies
    -Computer science

    1) If i where to pick Economics over business studies i think universities would prefer it as its seen as more challenging, with this i would pick Psychology however i would not do computer science as well as i think i would find it challenging to do two harder A-levels, this would also mean finding a 3rd A-level to pick other than maths or a language.

    2) However if i where to pick Business studies over Economics then i would do Psychology and Computer science, however Business and Psychology dont seem as difficult so it could affect the universities i could go to.

    Basically which option should i go for, in the future i am wanting to start a career as a Financial Trader, which you dont need A level maths for...

    What do you wish to do after? That will help decide!

    Wait you have only put 3 options on there.
