What the title says:-
A friend of mine needed some help regarding her brother's subject selection for A Levels. In the country I'm living in, it's compulsory to do 4 subjects in AS and 3(or even 2) in A2 so he has to take 4 subjects but he is facing slight difficulties in the subject selection. He is sure about Maths,Physics and for the third, he is most likely going to take Chemistry but for the 4th, he is quite confused. He isn't actually aware on which subject he will study in University but he wants to keep either Business Studies or Economics or Accounting as the 4th subject. So, which combination would be more useful for him?
1.Physics,Maths,Chemistry and Economics.
2.Physics,Maths,Chemistry and Accounting
3.Physics,Maths,Chemistry and Business Studies.
Also, could somebody explain how these subjects(Business etc) are like in Edexcel(Exam pattern,how much to study to score a good grade etc), I came from a pure Science background so I don't have any clue about it and was I able to help her out in explaining how it's like.
Thanks in Advance!

I would choose neither of them, another facilitating subject is the best choice. These are(according to Russell group):
Mathematics and Further Mathematics
English Literature, Physics, Biology ,Chemistry Geography, History, Languages (Classical and Modern)
It is almost impossible that he knows the career that he wants to study in two years time as he might change his mind. Therefore it's best to choose 4 of these subjects to keep more doors open. I would recommend an essay based subject like history or English lit. If he likes math then fmaths as it opens more doors in physics/engineering/maths careers.Last edited by marcobruni98; 24-09-2016 at 16:19.
