    I would say Geography, as it is more relevant to Economics. It is also a facilitating subject, which is highly favoured by universities

    Thanks for the reply again. How are these options for economics:
    Maths
    Further Maths
    Economics
    Geography

    Finally, I went to a comprehensive school which is in the 300s for A level results 2015 (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education...e-schools.html. I got into a grammar school sixth form which is in the top 20 in the country. However being there for a week, the teaching isn't amazing and I cannot do all the subjects I want.

    I want to do economics at a top 10 uni (preferably LSE) and at the comprehensive I can do Maths, Further Maths, Economics and Geography (or Chemistry) and if I cannot handle A2 FM, I can just do the AS in year 12. However at the grammar I can do Maths, Economics, Chemistry and Politics whilst only doing further maths as an AS in year 13 (1 lesson per a week).

    I am wondering which option should I choose as I can go back to my old comprehensive school.

    I think the comprehensive school would be the better option for you. You mentioned that the teaching at the grammar school isn't great and you can't do the subjects you want, so the comprehensive school seems like it would be more suitable
