    Do business instead. I believe all people who applied to financial degrees at my year applied to economics only with at least an A grade prediction, below that they applied for business. Everyone applying to a business degree got a B at AS or lower. They could have likely got a higher grade or the same grade with less revision doing business without hurting their application as it's not a bad subject for business at uni.

    Business is not a course in the sixth form.

    Hey I'm doing A level Economics

    Econ basically the study of human behaviour and how that influences the economy.

    it's split into Macro- Study of the economy as a whole and Micro- Study of individual markets within the economy (e.g housing market).

    A level Econ is mix of (basic) maths and politics (and general essay writing) so if that's your kinda thing, you will probs enjoy it. There is also a ton of graphs that you have to learn so be prepared for that.

    I'm taking it with Maths and Politics... going to do a economics degree.

    Why?
    You're asking if A level economics is hard. Everything is hard at A level. Some are just less hard than others.

    Economics isnt as hard as the maths/sciences but its still tough in its own right. If you're aiming for B/C then maybe its attainable with a bit of work, if you're prepared

    if you can work towards a B it would be better for you. The more knowledge you have now will give you a good starting point for the Alevel as you know your basics.
