    I'm in year 11 rn and i needed to choose my A-levels. Initially i put down, History, Government and politics and Economics. in the future i hope to do law or something around the legal system. However, i have heard from many that Econ and Maths are a good combo and universities really like students with that combo. but i hate maths with a passion, its not that im bad at it, i jst dont enjoy it and idk if i can carry on with it for two more years, so what im really asking is that do i do do endure math for 2 years and have the "ideal" subject choice or choose three subjects ik i can do well in and will enjoy but wont have the "ideal" subject choice?

    I dont have a passion for geography but still took it, i dont hate it, i just dont want to revise it. now if you hate maths then that's definitely gonna make revision/practising questions over and over a nightmare.

    you're not bad in maths, but even with an A* at gcse, i still find it difficult. so top ''hate maths with passion'' with maths being already hard for majority, i dont think you'll enjoy it

    i do geography, maths and history. history being the only one being VERY time consuming, i still wish there was an option to do only 2 a levels. that being said im glad i only took 3.

    econ and maths do go well, but is it worth it?
    is 4 worth it?
