    Hey everyone, I'm currently in Year 12 doing the IB and I'm going to retake the year to do A Levels. I want to do business (either pure business, law and business, business and management or something similar) at University and would like help picking my subjects. I've picked my three A Levels:

    -English Literature
    -Business Studes

    But for AS, I'm stuck - what should I choose between Sociology and Media Studies? I don't want Universities to think my subject choices are poor and would it matter considering it's only for AS?

    ps, moving to a grammar school so im looking at top unis

    Business is quite international so a language would be amazing, economics would be useful too.

    You can do one essay subject, that should suffice but a real interest in business should really sway you to do finance subjects.

    AS doesn't matter really anymore , id avoid it since it isn't used, and just because you're at a grammar school doesn't justify aiming for a top university, i think pretty much everyone aims high regardless of type of scjool.
