    I am currently doing Computer Science, Economics and History. However i hate economics, i picked it because i got an A* in business at GCSE however i didn't take business as imo its a weaker subject, however economics just drags on in lessons and revision i have no motivation to study it.

    If i wanted to pick another subject the only other one i would want to take is Maths however I only got a B at GCSE i feel that I would just be embarrassingly bad compared to everyone else (in a weird way im almost too afraid), unfortunately I only just started to really enjoy maths at the end of year 11, I was placed in the lowest group which really demotivated me and I did not really try, I had multiple tutors however when I started to actually revise, it was so much more enjoyable as all you had to do was watch a video then just go through some past paper questions, i wish i had realized this much earlier on as i would have confidently picked it as an A-level subject.

    With economics at A-level i sit there writing out notes and after about 1hr 1/2 i just give up....

    Part of me thinks i have no chance of doing well in A-level maths and i will just embarrass myself in front of everyone else in the class, what choices do I have?

    You have to actually be interested in Maths to succeed at it. If you prefer Maths over Economics and think you will actually work for Maths then drop Economics for Maths.
