I'm about to start (in September) Six-Form and I have some confusions about which A-Levels to takes, currently I have chosen:
Maths
Further Maths
Physics
Politics
History
I would like to study economics at university, possibly in addition to another subject. So would these A-Levels be adequate to get me into the top universities (provided the grades are OK) or would I need to do economics? Note: I have a genuine interest in economics.
Also, to get into the best universities for economics is Further Maths essential?
Thanks!

Those, subjects seem fine.

Yes, I belive the top unis, want Further Maths.

Doing Economics at A-elvel, would show your intrest it, maybe you could swap it with Politics.

Is there a reason why your not doing Economics?
I would of thought for the top uni's Oxbridge,LSE etc they would prefer you to have Economics.
Check the uni websites maybe
Other than that they seem fine but I'd consider doing Economics

Maths
Further Maths
Physics
History
Economics

That would be the best combination - if your school offers economics. Drop history at A2 and it will look nice.

Why arent you doing Economics?

The perfect ones for you would be Maths, Further Maths, Economics, History and Politics.

That kind of combination could get you in Cambridge or Oxford to do PPE. Or even LSE to do pure Economics or Economics and Governemnt(politics basically)

Good Luck

"Drop history at A2 and it will look nice." I don't plan to drop any subject and we cannot drop history (at our school anyway) because it is a 'linear course' meaning that it runs for the full two years. Any one else have that?
