Debating whether to drop Economics or Maths. I don't need either to get into the uni course im applying for so I would want to pick the easiest one.

Which would you say is easier to get an A in for A level?

Depends on your strength really . Economics at A level is easier. In uni they're equally difficult and time consuming.

It does depend on you, but a majority of students would say maths is harder than economics.
My friend had an A* at GCSE maths and a distinction in additional maths. He then got a C for A level maths. Re-sat the year, chose economics and got A in AS.

Oh right. Thanks for your reply.

Would you say that doing Economics instead of Maths could make it harder for me to get into Dentistry?

I checked a couple of university requirements for dentistry.
Basically, you need chemistry and biology. The last could be any other subject. So you can take economics if you want to. Or you could take maths, economics, chem and bio then drop either math or economics in the first 3 weeks.
