(Ok, I "agree", but concurring was so much more satisfying)
I too concur . That being said, I enjoyed economic A Level, and it dragged me through First Year economics by the skin of my teeth, but that was because I was more interested in theory than in maths. If you're actually fortunate enough to enjoy maths, I'd do that; it'll help you actually understand the craziness of uni economics .
I'm thinking of doing English Literature, History, Economics and Maths, and then dropping Maths at A2.
Realistically, does only doing 3 A-levels put you at a disadvantage?
And are those options okay? :O
i'd have thought these were good- i do 3 of them, but maybe reconsider dropping maths (if you only want to do three drop eng lit perhaps?); i've heard that having maths is quite handy if not essential.
In my experience if you learn by rote methods and formulae to pass your GCSEs you'll find A2 maths hard, by the time you get to C3/4 there's alot of different ways of doing things so you need to be a bit more instinctive. If you actually understand what you're doing rather trying to remember what your teacher said you should be ok.
That said, there's no reason why those 3 A-levels would disadvantage you beyond what's been said about maths being useful for economics. I do Politics A-level and that's what got me into PPE.
For the London Prophet, I haven't been rejected from anywhere yet but am still waiting to here from warwick.
[update] Warwick offered me AAB + either another C at A-level or another B at AS.
lololol a level maths is as mechanistic and repetitive as it gets
