    Hi im doing maths, economics, physics and further maths in yr 12 atm, just wondering if Uni's like the furhter maths for AS as I intend on doing maths, physics and economics for A2 not further. Although I could drop further maths now and use the time for my other subjects now? Any thoughts as Uni's only really want 3 A2's right...

    Well what do you want to do in uni is the question?

    Yes. With the modular system, AS further maths is useful.

    Either accounting, electrical engineering or economics, I thought though if I had physics the need for the AS shouldn't be too great

    For all types of engineering, Further Maths is always encouraged because engineering is quite heavy on maths content (from what I've heard) so it gives you an advantage. If you decide to go to the business side of engineering then Economics would pay off.

    Economics courses generally from what I've seen require Economics and Maths A Levels so having Further Maths would still be somewhat relevant but as for Accounting I reckon it would enhance your maths skills. A student from last years Year 13 applied for Economics with Maths, Further Maths and Economics.

    In my opinion Maths, Further Maths, Economics and Physics are a popular and strong combination because they almost all compliment each other.
