Hello. Yesterday I attended an A-Level open night and I am considering the following subjects:

- Maths
- Computer Science
- English language
- Economics
- Business

Now, of course I can only pick four so I would like to ask your personal opinions on any of the subjects, is it boring compared to gcse? Is it worth doing the course?

Thanks,
Jake

Since your taking Maths and Computer Science, I would recommend taking Economics over Business, no point taking both. English language as an A Level I would think is also quite boring imo, English Literature is a lot more interesting.

I'd agree with this! English Lit vs lang is often personal choice, but I was at a A-Level open session and the Economics person recommended the subject as a harder alternative to Bussiness (I Know he's biased but the business teacher said economics is generally harder..) best of luck with choosing!

Thanks, I might reconsider business as quite a few people have said economics is better.

Choose the ones that your really enjoying at GCSE. If your undecided on choosing your last option flip a coin and you will be either happy or sad by the result.

English Language is the awkward one out as most of them are numerical subjects and that's what you most likely excel at, so get rid off Eng Lang. Job done.
