    okk i think im getting somewhere.

    if i do maths economics psychology and further maths and drop further maths would this be ok?

    also i was thinking of going straight into a degree for actuarial science or accounting, but some people think its better to do a maths or economics degree first? can someone enlighten me on this, although its not really that important yet as i need to start college first obviously.

    How sure are you about wanting to go into accounting or actuarial work? I was pretty sure about going into actuarial though chose to do an economics degree and now I'm glad since I'm no longer sure if I want to do that anymore (and I've not even started yet!).

    I would advise to either do mathematics or economics. Probably economics. :p:
    But, if you're 100% sure about going into either accounting or actuarial, then go for it. Even if you don't, you could always do something else with your degree.

    Yes, this should be fine. The most important thing, really, is having A-Level Maths.
