67475576[/url]]Currently I am studying Maths, Chemistry, Economics at AS level. I am considering dropping economics and possibly taking something a little easier for a higher chance of me getting a good grade.

The only reason I am skeptical is because people in my sixth form seem to be saying how difficult economics gets at A2 as well as the teacher. My question is that is Economics a relatively straight foward a level for edexcel- is it mainly factual recall or is it something like English Lit largely based on how you write.

I tend to be good at subjects where if you revise well, you will do well- where there is a process like for maths its past paper, repeat.
Hey, i was kinda like you. I wanted to take economics thinking it woukd be a lot of factual information and a quantitive subject. Boy how i was worng. Edexcel economics is partly as described aboved, but primarily essay-type questions. Hence, i was on a path to failure as i suck at writing long length responses. If you're like me, it's probably a good idea to swap subjects before you get too into it.
