hey, I’m year 11 and want to think forward to the future. I’m at the stage where I should start applying for colleges etc. I have looked around at a few colleges and what courses they offer at A level and have 3 in mind. I want to take Economics or something regarding the economy and practical math (such as accountancy) at University. I have ruled out teaching as I don’t think I’d enjoy that at all.

For A Level, I’m thinking about taking these three subjects:
-Law
-Politics
-Economics

Are these the right choice for what I want to do? And could anyone recommend any uni courses I could look at just to get an idea? Thanks

If you wish to do Economics then most unis require Maths.

Business or Accountancy would be more straightforward.

Hey. Thanks for the reply and the in depth links. Business I don’t have a big urge to do (despite taking it as a BTEC). I’ll take a look at these links. If I have anymore questions I’ll be sure to ask you again. Thank you!!

The point is the importance of maths for an economics degree.
