    In my GCSE's i got 10A*S and C in english..

    Alevels-
    Maths
    FurtherMaths
    Physics
    Art
    & Economics ( i did business gcses and i also pick economics alevel but i didnt like it lol too many essays.. so i chose to do Business instead. Economics is long and heavily written based subject. dont get me wrong, it is an amazing subject but not for me lol i am more of the Physics and Maths type of guy)

    You can start Economics without any knowledge of anything like I did. Maths can be useful. In AS, we learnt about 5 VERY easy equations but the majority of it will be in A2 (still very little maths). It's easy to understand if you have a good teacher. You draw a lot of graphs

    I had a B in maths and english GCSE (and most of my other grades) but I finished AS with A in Econ and AB for chemistry and biology so maths isn't that important but you will need good straight to the point writing skills whilst linking up theories.
