    I did it and got an A* but its very boring and isn't relevant to economics.

    yeah I know but for UCL or Anyof the top Unis they want Maths, Economics and something else (A*A*A or A*AA ) so if I can get (A* maths A Economics and perhaps A* ICT) it will look good?

    Some universities don't look at ICT too favorably. I know Trinity College @ Cambridge doesn't because they have a blacklist of subjects. http://www.trin.cam.ac.uk/admissions...l-combinations

    You should pick Further Maths and any subject from list A1/A2

    Pointless. It's a soft subject and not respected.

    I have taken this course at A Level and am awaiting my results for A2 Level. The coursework is fairly easy (most of my class got 95% or more marks) but the exam (based on last years AS paper) is very hard based on what people got.

    For example:

    The cumulative percentage of people getting A's overall is at 7.5% in ICT

    On the other hand qualifications such as Mathematics for WJEC are at 29.1%

    TLDR: If you want to get some easy UCAS points then A Level ICT may not be your best choice.
