Hey

I just done my GCSE's, 8A* and 2A's....I've chosen to do Chem, Bio, Maths (stats) and Economics.....

Do top Uni's think its better to have further maths for Economics? And even if they say officially they dont care whether you do, do they in reality, use that as a discriminator?

Also, do I need something like History or English at A level? I mean, cuz of all the essay writing?

Swap one of Bio or Chem for English lit or History - providing you are good at essay based subjects.

It'll also make you more rounded, in terms of academia. So if you have a change of heart, you still have plenty of doors left open for you...

I do suggest that you fit an essay subject or even a language in there if you can just to make seem like an all rounded candidate.
FMaths is definitely useful once you get to uni, but bu no means is it used as a criterion for the selection process.
If you enjoy it, then go for it...but consider that most people who do FMaths are usually pretty good at maths and therefore many will get As/are expected to do well.
