I want to do buisness and management systems in uni later on, and i have to choose A-levels right now. Ive chosen economics and buisness but i need to choose a third subject. I'm not in favour of doing mathematics since i find it abit hard and im aiming for A*. Can you please advice me what third subject i should choose instead?

Hi there,

To answer your question directly. It would depend on the A-Level subjects your sixth form is offering. Without knowing this information. I'd recommend a more practical-based subject like Computing, ICT or Media Studies.

I would advise not doing both Business and Economics together at AS or A-Level. There is a lot of overlap between the two in terms of topics discussed and you might feel like you are learning the same things twice. Universities look at Economics more favourably as an A-Level qualification, so I think you should definitely choose it.

If you don't want to do mathematics with economics. There are some other combinations you can look at like:


  • Economics, History, Politics
  • Economics, History, Sociology
  • Economics, Politics, Law
  • Economics, Accounting, Politics
  • Economics, English Literature, Philosophy
  • Economics, History, (GCSE Language you did)

I mention Economics and History a lot because it is a good combination for university and the critical/analytical skills you'll learn from one can help you in the other.

Hope this helps

Hi aniyah.haider

If you've already chosen business and econ, I'd choose a subject you're interested in. You'll already have a good base of knowledge with those two, so know choose something you're passionate about and enjoy. It'll be more fun and you'll likely do better.
