All of the subject shouldn’t be similar as you might change your mind in the next 2 years

I too want to work in investment banking, I just finnished my A levels, I took maths, further maths, computer science and physics in which I achieved A*A*A*C respectively and I am currently applying to study mathematics at undergraduate level with the aim of working at an investment bank after graduation.

This is just the route I am choosing because it suits me (Absolutely love mathematics), I find that a lot of degrees will be suitable for getting into investment banking and that the actual subject of the degree doesn't matter all that much, just that you got the degree. In this respect, you would want to choose a university course that you would genuinely enjoy and thrive in when the time comes, you probably have an idea of what this would be now, thus you want to choose A levels that will allow you to get onto that course (if there are any required A levels, for example, for mathematics at the unis I've applied to, mathematics and further mathematics were required A levels), but in general, just choose A levels that interest you, that you genuinly want to study and that you can thrive in and ultimately achieve top grades.

Also, stay well clear of 'blacklisted' A levels such as critical thinking and general studies unless it's on top of your three main A levels as some unis don't recognise them as suitable A levels for their entry requirements.

You'd be better to choose Maths than Economics. It's needed to study Finance/Economics at university, but Economics A-level is not. If you want to be an investment banker, I would personally suggest you go with Maths, Economics, Geography/History/Politics + maybe Further Maths.

MATHS AND FURTHER MATHS. People say you only need A level maths but people who apply will be very very good at maths and will probably have done A2 maths and either AS or full a level FM. Don't do economics as it has no relevance what so ever at A level. Worst subject I picked thank God in changing

Hi

Apart from economics you can do other stuff. Or maybe you could do law?

I mean I don't know if it's useful for investment banking. I'm planning to do economics at uni. I am looking at a career in risk management but I'm not sure. But I love my subjects at the moment
