100%!!!! I was sceptical bc I didn't even know what it was but it's now my favourite subject and I'm applying to study it an uni. It's not too hard but it's still a 'preferred' A-level.
With maths and econ, you can study any econ related courses and go into the finance sectors (banking/accountancy)

It all comes from the scarcity of resources, which is referred to as the 'basic economic problem'. Resources in our world are limited but wants are infinite. The main objective of economics is the satisfaction of these needs and wants through the market mechanism, which allocates these resources giving a price to goods.

If that sounds like it interests you, then go for it. No degree specifically asks for economics, so it's best to mix it with two facilitating subjects (such as English Lit and Maths like I did), but it's so relevant to our worldwide issues today and we get to use real life examples in our essays.

It's certainly not as theoretical as the natural sciences - you don't conduct your own experiments, you use data from the real world. I love it as it's not as far-fetched as maths, it's more useful.

P.S I do the same subjects as you're considering, except instead of Eng. Lang I do Literature, and I advise you do the same as it's far more established.

Not entirely sure about what career quite yet, but I'd like to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics at uni (as I'm in my A2 year I may pick up AS Philosophy). You don't need any of these subjects at A level to do the degree, and I'm pretty sure they'd prefer English Lit to Govt & Politics (English is more established, though Politics is a relatively useful A level too). Economics sits right in the middle of English and Maths, being a social science.

Hope that helps.
