Is economics a good a level. I did geography at gcse and like the human side of it especially doing economic development. I know it won’t be like that but I literally have no clue what it’s like

Good in what respect?

If you want to find out more about the subject, here's the AQA and Edexcel specification. You can look at the topics + descriptions.

Yes. Personally, it is the only subject that helped me developed new skills: analysis and evaluation. It is also one of the most applicable subjects.

Economics, maths and geography is a great combination. But economics can go with anything really.

You don’t need to have done business gcse to understand economics A level. And the maths in economics isn’t hard either

As the above users said. Most people do economics without having studied economics or business before so don't worry about that. If you want to study economics at uni then you will need maths (and further maths for the holy grail unis). But other than that choose whatever you like!

We did study economic development but just at the very end of the syllabus and only briefly (AQA). Other exam boards may have a bigger chunk of their syllabus on development so you may well check on that
