Biology or economicsWatch
Any advice helps
Whether economics is specifically worth swapping to depends on you and your interest in the subject area - if you like human geography then that might be a good indicator economics would be up your alley, although it is quite different in many ways (the economic theory is more formally mathematical, although at A-level standard this isn't particularly intense and if you are doing A-level Maths and doing well in it so far you shouldn't have trouble with the mathematical content).
I’ve currently taken maths, geography and biology a levels with no clear career path in mind would it be a bad idea to swap biology out for economics as I’ve had a week of lessons and have not enjoyed biology at all and I’m stressed about how much work biology is.
Any advice helps
I hope you are well,
I understand that you may have no clear career path; however, swapping either Biology and Economics could influence the degree course you go on to study. Is there any university course which you may have an interested in? If it is a “scientific” based course, then having A Level Biology may likely help meet the entry requirements. However, if it is more of a “business/enterprise” course, then possibly economics would better prepare you for the degree.
Do you enjoy Geography A Level? From my experience, in the end, I went with the degree course that interested me the most- geography. However, I was still unsure of what sub-discipline, human or physical geography, therefore went down the middle and studied Geography BSc(Hons).
The University Of Huddersfield also has a list of careers you could enter- taken from the Royal Geographic Society. However, if the following career paths don’t interest you, by studying a Geography degree, you will likely gain many transferable skills which you could utilise in different industries.
• Environmental Management
• Finance Banking
• Commercial Enterprises
All the best with your studies,
