    Hey guys,
    I just finished my GCSEs and I'm thinking of taking Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Economics at A level.

    Would I be at any disadvantage in economics as I have not taken business studies or economics at GCSE? Ive heard that Economics a level has an element of business studies.

    Economics doesn't require previous knowledge tbh. I did Buisness at GCSE and there was nothing similar in there. It depends on your spec and board though. I did AS Economics A.

    My school didn't offer Economics GCSE, but still had around 90 take it for A Level. It doesn't require prior knowledge; if it does have have elements of business studies, then I'm sure it can't be too tedious(given that Business Studies A Level is semi-GCSE in difficulty).
