As I’m picking my A-Levels in the coming months, I’m starting to really consider what I want to do. I have a passion for Economics, however my school doesn’t offer it. I know for sure that I want to do Maths and Business Studies, and the Welsh Bac. is compulsory. I’m then left unaware of my other choice(s).
I’m considering Physics, something I’m considerably good at, however not relevant to Economics, Further Maths - something I like but the subject is a complete mess in my school, and a literary subject - English Lit. or History.
My grades favour English by a large margin, however I do enjoy History as I find it interesting. So it’s down to preference or achievement...
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

For economics, maths A-level would definitely be important. Also further maths will help for the top unis.
I would pick Physics/History/English whichever subjects you really enjoy. Don't get too caught up in career prospects, because minds can change. If you pick lets say maths and physics, you will have a lot of doors open to you (economics,comp sci,physics etc..)
Personally I would pick History over English, because its more interesting but I am 100% biasedLast edited by SuperHuman98; 17-02-2018 at 12:18.

If ur more confident with English then choose that over history i guess. If u want to do something economics related then subjects like Maths, Physics and F.Maths are important as well. Also what do u mean physics isnt relevant to to economics? Everyone in my school who wants to do something economics related does physics and maths- those are like the core subjects.
Some universities will accept u into an economics course at Uni without doing economics or business studies- Stats in Maths is much more important and physics to that matter. Does ur school offer an EPQ? That is quite valuable to have also; as it will make u stand out

No EPQ. I really enjoy business studies and it’s where my grades are best at, and after talking to my teacher she suggesed that Economics is a mixture of maths and bus. which I totally agree on after doing igcse econ
