    Hi All,
    So I'm really interested in investment banking and its something I would love to go into. I'm taking Physics, Maths and Chemistry at A Level, and I've been predicted AA*A respectively, but looking at courses I'm not sure which would be the most ideal to go into investment banking with. I'm looking potentially at Econ, Physics and Chemistry at possibly UCL, LSE or Bristol. However I'd love some input as to what would be the best most helpful degree for me to take, and where are the best possible places I can go with my grades which would further my goal of going into investment banking?
    Thanks for taking the time

    With my predicted grades of A*AA what target universities do you think I could realistically get offers from?
    Also is it an advantage to do an Economics degree instead of a science degree?

    No it's not an advantage. You could apply to any of the target universities. It depends on what course you want to apply to.

    Do you mean to say if I applied for Physics at Oxford I'd stand a chance with my grades? (I only got 6A*s 4As and 2Bs at gcse)

    You'll have a chance, not a great chance but a chance.
