    Personally I would drop economics. In my opinion it would be better to focus on 3 subjects that you enjoy and can focus on to get good grades. University's usually base their offers on 3 A level grades and if anything I think they would prefer 3 good a levels, rather than 3 good ones and 1 that you think you are going to fail. Plus it is insanely annoying having to put up with a bad teacher. And you will get more free hours to focus on your other subjects. You could always drop economics and do the EPQ if you are worried about sociology not being well respected enough, because for starters uni's love it, and secondly it shows independence and you can choose whatever interests you.
