    I don’t really like Economics but my parents and lots of people are saying it would be a really good subject to have, however a lot of people are also saying biology is better and I have the chance to change so I don’t know if I should

    biology is actually better to have, its a facilitating subject and very respected but its also hard

    plus you should never do a subject if you don't like it because you have to read around it

    also economics is absolutely useless because if you wanted to do it in uni they dont even ask for economics at a level, they only ask for maths so theres literally no point in doing economics

    another thing is that most schools dont even offer economics so its not even that important

    also biology will give you access to a wider range of careers and whatnot

    Yeah that’s what I was thinking because I also do maths so if I decided to do Economics at Uni I could always just do it, thank you so much for helping

    I don't know about economics, but biology can take you down plenty of routes, like medicine, research, dentistry etc.
    Otherwise why not take both?
    I know a few people who are taking 5 A-levels and are doing pretty well, it really depends on how much you can cope with.

    Even if you do, the usefulness is debatable.
