    So far i know i will pick Economics and History, now i know u probably think that maths is essential however im not doing A level maths or any languages. I would like a 3rd a level that is seen as 'softer' yet still is on the preferred subject list of university, as i think i will find these 2 alone fairly challenging. I was considering computer science however i think i would struggle with the coding, and also psychology however reading about people's views on this A level may have put me off picking it for my 3rd. I appreciate all the help. Thanks.

    I want to go into financial trading which requires Economics/Business etc degree. Some of the higher up universities also dont require A level maths as an essential, but you need grade B in GCSE maths.

    I agree with the above commenter that Politics would be a good, slightly easier but still preferred choice. If you're up for more of a challenge, English Lit., Philosophy and Biology are all excellent also (and even more respected). I would avoid Geography - the workload is stupendous, and it's (for me at least) apallingly dull.
