    Hello there!

    I am currently a year 12 student who is taking the following AS/A Levels:

    English Lit AS: (b)
    Math AS: (c)
    German AS: (a) German A level (a*) - predicted
    Business AS (a) Business A level (a*) - predicted
    Econ AS (a) Econ A level predicted (a*) - predicted

    As you will notice, I am taking German, Economics and Business at A2. However, recently I have been reading several uni blogs which all had implied what a terrible, terrible idea it is to combine business with economics. Is it certain that I will be rejected from most Economics programs now, especially the Russel Group programs?

    Oh for sure, maybe even consider taking AS further maths if you are up to it. I doubt oxbridge and other high end russel group unis will even consider you without a full maths a level. Also having a language a level like german is really awesome and looks great.
