    I have a dilemma for choosing my A-levels. I'm not sure if i want to do Engineering or not in uni but i also want to do economics. My school's physics department is horrible and i'm still not sure if i like physics for this reason. These are the subjects i need to choose from. Maths, Further maths, Physics, Chemistry and economics.

    Also, do i need full further maths to get into a good uni for economics? do i need full further maths to get into a good uni for engineering? Do i need economics to get into a good uni for economics or not?

    Okay so

    Some universities require maths and further maths for economics (top universities)
    You don't require GM for engineering however you require maths and physics.
    If your sixth form offers economics it is recommended you do it at A Level before degree level - some courses will ask for economics. All will ask for maths.

    Your best choices will be Maths, Physics and Economics. Look at different sixth forms if you're unhappy with a department.
