I am 6 weeks into my a level course. I originally started with economics, geography, history, and philosophy but after some rethinking, i changed my philosophy to politics and history to a new period (ocr-late modern, so Weimar Germany, Pitt to peel and civil rights). So i now have been doing history, economics, politics, and geography. I am unsure what to drop, as i am definitely only capable of doing three. to give you an insight, i am probably keeping geography as i got 99% at GCSE and i find it enjoyable and it will be useful later in life. However i find aqa economics quite hard and dont know if it will get worse or better. history i am quite good at with 92% at GCSE but i spend at least 10 hours a week on essays in the subject (all other three subjects combined) and i have heard it is a very demanding a level and i dont want to do it if i cannot keep up as i have alot of other co-curricular commitments. Politics is going well i think so far, but apparently it gets very hard in A2. i want to do business/marketing and management at university so my intial thought was to keep economics, as it would be very useful even if i dont get as good a grade, politics and geography and drop history. the entry requirements for Durham, Bath, Exeter are all AAB so i can afford a B in economics i guess. what are your thoughts? thanks.

Ha drop Economics asap. I'm doing aqa and it's not easy because if you don't get one concept you don't get anything else because everything builds on each other. And trust me getting even a B grade ain't easy. Macro is interesting but micro is so boring it could kill you.
But it's your choice but I'd dip out of economics if you don't need it which you probably don'tLast edited by Jigsaws mum; 23-10-2017 at 00:58.
