    Not sure what to choose between the two.

    1. I haven't done Business Studies before closest thing to it has been Economics (Yr 10 - 11) and Business Communications (Yr10).

    2. If it's similar to Economics, I'm not sure how well I'd do because I always struggled with it and never liked the subject.

    3. I honestly don't like chemistry because it's quite hard and even though I do like some aspects of the subject I generally don't like it.

    So what are your thoughts on the two very different subjects?

    I did business with economics for GCSE and loved it! Economics is harder but business is pretty easy when compared to economics at GCSE. I'm not too much of a fan on chemistry but I've heard it's pretty difficult.

    Chemistry is super hard. If you don't like it, it's likely you won't do well in it. Whereas Business is arguably on the easy side, and therefore is definitely a subject that isn't preferred by most top universities. Also, Business at GCSE I found was painfully boring. What are your other options?

    Not sure tbh because I'm going to do Math, Psychology and I want to choose one of those as a third subject. I want to study business psychology in uni so I guess business might be more useful

    I never really enjoyed economics, but how similar are the two subjects?

    Think about the things you find easy at GCSE, pick your subjects based on that l. Maybe wait till your results?

    Can't speak for chemistry, but I did business studies AS this year and found it very easy. It is boring and there's lots of content to learn, but I wouldn't say any of it is hard to grasp.

    Why on earth would you even consider taking chemistry if you "generally don't like it"? You'll come out with a U/E with that mentality.
