What do you want to study at university and then what you want to do after you complete your degree?

I'm an A2 student, and I genuinely cannot stress this enough - unless you're applying for Oxbridge (and even then, really) - choose the subjects you're best at. If you want to go to Oxford or Cambridge, I'd choose two of your absolute best facilitating subjects (even if you're getting A*s in all of them, you still have a subject you prefer/are better at).
If you simply want to go to a good RG uni (think Manchester/Bristol), choose the subjects you're best at. An A in Business Studies looks significantly better than a C or a B in Economics, so don't worry about subjects being "soft" - as long as they're still academic in nature (which they all are), go for it.

Hi, sorry for this late response.
I study both business and economics at A-Level and I can assure you economics is a lot harder than business. There are a lot more graphs involved and you have to remember a lot more than in business. In fact, when I started A-Levels, the lecturer said a C in economics is equivalent to an A in Business.
The A-Levels you go for tend to not really matter to most universities but higher places like Oxford and Cambridge it would as economics is classed as a 'classic subject' so they rate it highly compared to business which means they might ask you to get an A* in business compared to an A in economics. So unless you are aiming for a top top university, take business. But if you are aiming for unis like Oxford or Cambridge, you may be better off taking economics unless you feel like you can achieve a high grade in business.
Hope this helps.

I would say take business over economics because there is little point taking an A-Level that you won't enjoy. But if you are aiming for those top unis, make sure you get the highest grade possible to increase your chance of acceptance.

Hiiiii omg I can relate lol. Anyway, I’ll be completely honest, with those subjects you won’t be granted a place at Oxbridge, I know it sounds harsh but it’s the truth. However, you may not want to go to oxbridge and tbh loads of top unis would admit you with those subjects. Honestly, do what you enjoy and what you’re good at because the subjects if you enjoy your subject, you’re more likely to get a good grade. As said earlier in the thread an A* in Business Studies is better than a C in Economics🤷🏾*♀️. That’s just my advice. Also your friends seem annoying man, they should just let u live😩

Good luck w ur a levels and GCSEs; I’ve got mine this summer as well lol🤪
