For economics at uni, history or geography? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm currently in year 11 and will have to pick my subjects on results day. I plan to do some sort of economics degree at uni, preferably at LSE. My first two options are pretty much set in stone and there are maths and economics. And for the third option, I can't decide whether to go with history or geography?

    I'd say I'm equally good at both and enjoy them both too. In geography, I prefer the human side and that's what interests me while sometimes finding physical geography a bit of a drag. For history at a level, we're doing the Russian revolution which sounds really interesting to me and the Stuarts, which doesn't seem so great.

    I've tried to evaluate the pros and cons and I don't want to do 4 A levels as it's unnecessary, additional work. Which subject would unis respect more and is better suited to doing a degree in economics?

    Also appreciate comments on what studying economics, history and geography a levels are like.
