    I have recently made my AS-level choices, and I would like some input about the choices I have made. I have chosen:
    -Philosophy
    -Maths
    -Classical Civilizations
    -Economics.
    I intend to study economics at university level, although this may change if I prove not to be too talented at the subject at AS level. How would you rate these choices, assuming that I stick with economics to university?

    It's a good selection, but have you considered doing further maths? Further maths puts you in a good position when applying at top universities.

    If you're aiming for a top Uni further maths would definitely help. Otherwise, they're all decent/'non-blacklisted' subjects

    The options you have chosen are fine for wanting to study Economics. However Further maths would enhance your overall application, when wanting to apply to those top universities

    I did Classical Civ GCSE and I despised it, but that was probably because it was done during my own time, not in shool time. Are these subjects chosen with a particular career in mind or out of your interests? If it's the latter, stick with them!

    Substituting Classical Civ for Politics makes good sense. Politics is more relevant and in-tune with Economics, and you can go down the political university road should you choose to. I study both.

    Swap Classical Civilisations for History and you have the ideal PPE A-levels. They should be fine for Economics-just make sure you get A's in Economics, and particularly, in Mathematics. Good Luck!

    despite what everyone's suggesting don't do FM unless you think you can actually do it and if youre planning on go to the likes of Oxbridge/LSE/UCL etc
