Is economics a good degree to do?
I am currently in year 11 but I want to start exploring career options. The A-Levels I'm probably going to do are Maths, Further Maths, Geography and Chemistry but I am also thinking about Economics. The school I went to never really helped us with career options - they only ever encouraged apprenticeships. Is economics a respected degree and is it worth doing?

Thank you x

Economics is definitely a respected degree and has good graduate prospects from what I have heard.
