    I'm picking my A levels and I'm still not sure what I'm going in to in the future (maybe political economy) so I'm keeping my options opened.

    I picked biology, government and politics, history and as sociology

    I was wondering if these would provide me with good career choices in the future? Or is biology unnecessary in this combination?

    Looks ok but maybe swapping sociology for econ would make more sense? Also im not sure about political econ but im sure normal econ degrees are very maths heavy so maths a level wouldn't hurt though it may be better to check a university's advice on acceptable subjects for political econ

    Sadly economics at my school is not great otherwise I would pick it. I wanted to do maths but I only got a B in gcse maths however, I got in to A level maths because I passed the entry exam, but I thought overall I would struggle too much even though I can work hard, what do you think? Will I struggle if I pick maths? And I checked for political economy they just require one essay based subject and B's or above in gcse maths and english (which I got)

    You should make your own thread for more people to actually answer your question, but I think you should but don't take anything hard like maths, chemistry etc. And you should do well, pick things you enjoy and work hard!!!
