That sounds good if you like those subjects. But bear in mind that some universities won't accept a combination of business and econ so have a look at some uni courses you are interested in and see if that's ok. If not, maybe find an essay based subject you like such as geography or history

Could you tell us what job or degree you want?

Seems finance orienated.

Most ideal combination would probably be maths, further maths, physics/economics

Yeah, my friend had exactly the same problem. Though it really depends at what you're hoping to do in the future, personally I would drop buisiness. However, it's a personal choice, also you may want to look further ahead, as some uni's don't require a certain subject (if that is what you would want to do....?) as some schools don't offer these a levels. If you're looking into what would take you further in life, generally, both A levels open up a lot of oppurtunities.

I've heard that Economics has a lot of similar content to that within maths... I don't know if that helps, but it's a thought, as a variety of A levels, may present you with a lot more oppurtunites, so I agree that an essay subject in this case would be apt.

Well, maths, further maths and physics would get you into anything finance related or anything Engineering related

Universities sometimes rate economics as being better than business but like everyone else has said, it depends on where you want to go and what you want to do

Hi I need urgent help ASAP.My subs are economics and law and I have to choose between history or business.I’ll either be studying in the UK or US.Plus I’ll be doing anything in the future except engineering or medicine etc as u can see from my subs...so please help me out and like also a subject amongst those which universities prefer aswell.Some say business is an unacceptable Alevel which I don’t even think is true .Thought i know that grades trump subject combination in Alevels.Also I want to know that can I take Economics,history and law and get admission into a business major course or will I need business Alevel for that.
