    Having done my economics A2, I got a B. Im in my third year of A-levels after changing the subjects I took previously. Im currently predicted 3A's in English, Computing and History. I want to apply to some top Universitys for economics and I know I need an A to do so, but I don't want to show them it took me 3 years to get a B. Is it possible I could reject the whole grade and do the whole A-level this year, with my teachers predicting me an A and get away with it?

    I think you need at least Maths A-level, to get into a decent uni for Economics. Also, Further Maths would be helpful.

    So that might be a problem.

    Like g-star said, you need Maths A level to be getting into the top universities. Further maths will help, like he said again, but it is not essential whereas maths pretty much is.

    Don't think you can reject grades anymore though

    Surely if you make clear that Economics is a completed A-level it will not look like it took you 3 years to get a B?
