    Don't take both Business AND economics. My school doesn't let us do both for a reason. Take one or the other , History and one more subject you enjoy and is facilitating.

    No one can tell you what to take because we don't know you.

    Why shouldn't I take business and economics? I want to go into business when I'm older, surely both subjects will give me a good start, right?

    If you choose something, and you end up changing your mind, when you officially enroll when you get your results, you might have to change around a few option anyway

    Business and economics, whilst they aren't completely the same, have a sizeable overlap. If you want to go into business, take Business. If you want to go into finance, take Economics. It would be redundant to take both because Business is more suited to your future plans anyway.

    Most people would say a private school. I go to a private school and so am biased because I’ve only experienced one type of education. Just out of curiosity, why are you asking?

    Gordonstoun is really good, Prince Charles was educated there I believe.

    I went to a good comprehensive and I would say it was better than the local private school. I've met many people who went to a private school and there in the same position as I many so I feel you would be wasting your money.

    Last year I received: AAABB for my SQA Higher exams.

    If your looking for schools that far north, why not look at Cults Academy. The most successful state school for Higher results outside Edinburgh and Glasgow.

    If your parents or sponsors are willing to pay for your tuition/boarding. Then you may as well go for it.
