I'm thinking of applying for a Natural Sciences at Cambridge, with Chemistry, Physics and Computer Science (and Maths, of course).
I'm currently in lower sixth, studying Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics. In addition to this, I'm also studying A2 Economics, having achieve a B grade AS economics in year 11.
Given that Economics isn't directly relevent to the course that I wish to do, how much of a malignant effect do you think it will have on my application? I'm hoping to achieve a very high AS Maths and Chemistry mark, along with a good Physics mark (AAAA at least, if all goes to plan). Ultimately, I think that upon leaving I will have A*A Maths and Further Maths, A* Chemistry and A grade Physics, with B grade Economics. Do you think this Economics grade will doom me to failure in my application? I'm not sure, given that it's not directly relvant and I'm doing it a year early.
To add to the bad news I did AS Critical Thinking in year 11 but only achieved a C grade.
Realistically, do I have much hope of getting in? In terms of raw grades at least, disregarding interviews etc.
