    Really depends on what you want to do. Univeristies do mostly ask for 3, and all top unis do. WHy not take a facilitating subjects? Some unis look down on lack of facilitating subjects (like Maths, English, Sciences, Geography etc.). Also if you are bad at maths, you may find Accounting and Business pretty tough anyway. Really would recommend taking 3 A levels if you can and depending on what you want to do in the future.

    Well then it really depends where you want to go after school, and then if you're school/college would let you do 2 A Levels since it is an unusual choice.

    Take a third. If you hate it / do bad then drop it.

    If you want to go to university, then probably not, sorry. Most universities need 3 A levels to make an offer, but there might be some that don't, look into it.

    Doing bad won't affect?

    But if you are doing bad it won't look good on Uni applications.

    I very strongly advise against it. Accounting and Business are pretty much useless without Maths to accompany them.
    Maths is the most important A-level

    OP, if the problem is that you're bad at maths, why not take a completely different A level? Talk to your Sixth Form about it - there's always other options if you're hating a particular subject.

    That's the reason I am afraid of, I got 'D' in IGCSE and I am repeating it.

    I didn't take either, so I can't really say I'm afraid. Economics is fairly maths-based so if you hate maths then it's probably not a good option. Are these the only two options available to you, though? Why not look at something totally different?

    May be A-Levels are not for you.

    Why not do A Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in 1 thing you enjoy? available at many colleges!

    It can still get you to Uni.

    This is a very good point. I know several people who got into university with a BTEC. Enjoyed it much more than A levels, too. A levels really aren't for everyone!
