    I got an A* in Maths GCSE, B in Further Maths and B in English (I dislike English but apparently there is essay writing in Economics). I also am going to take Chemistry, Biology and Spanish so was thinking I'd find Maths too hard with the other subjects.

    What kind of area are you looking to go to in the future / for uni? (Not that it matters particularly if you choose Maths over econ, but the other way round it may limit you slightly)

    The thing with maths is that it's 'easy' once you click with it, which happens at some point during the year, and it often becomes a fun break. Not everyone finds that but if you just take the time to practice questions until you are comfortable with everything, then it'll be fine and won't feel like a full A-level.
