    They're great if you're focusing on investment banking, for law you would need to consider an A level in law or English!

    Law doesn’t have any specific requirements but an essay-based subject like History could be useful. Nonetheless Economics is pretty good at showing this, and if you are more numerate then you should focus on them 4 subjects you’ve mentioned. Do you genuinely enjoy all those subjects?

    Do you actually enjoy them though? At A-Level, being good at it at GCSE isn’t enough to keep you going, you have to have true passion for your subject. Almost half of my Physics class has dropped it, they all got good grades (A/A*) but didn’t actually like the subject enough.
