I’m thinking of applying to this sixth form I’ve seen. I definitely want to do Economics, considering I already do Business at school right now. There aren’t much other courses I can think of apart from Maths and Business Studies, however Maths requires a Grade 6 and I’m around a 5 right now.

I currently do Business, Computer Science, Art, and Media Studies which I never wanted to do in the first place, so that’s definitely going.

I’ve read Business on its own is a soft subject, but can be paired together with Economics to maximise both, so I could do this. Any advice for me on this?

You should work out which subjects you wnat to do at A level. like and are good at + the school will allow you to take.
You normally need a 6.

Aim for A levels that interest you and you cna do well in. Grades will get you further than taking things you have no interest in and get poor grades for.

Have a think about what subject you want to study or career you want to follow.

If its Economics, then you should definitely work on your Maths as thats usually a requirement at degree level.
Business studies rarely does.


You need to work out the 3 that interest you and work as a combination for entry onto the course that interests you. make the lists now and see how much that takes shape.

most important thing is you take subjects you enjoy. economics is quite a mathsy subject and some schools may ask for a 6 in gcse maths (depends on the sixth form/college so do plenty of research on their requirements) but keep revising and working hard at the subject; lots of resources freely available online for it nowadays

The sixth form I’m going to apply to only needs 5 9-5 GCSE’s for economics, including English Language and Maths. However, for A-Level maths I need to at least get a 6.

Would Economics, Maths and Business all be good together? I may try and do these.

Yes but you should really do the 3 you enjoy and will get the best grades.
