hi! my subjects that i ve chosen for as levels so far are Art, Spanish, Philosophy, Economics.

I really have not idea what i want to be when im older but have been looking into law and economics simply because of the stability it offers, unsure if id enjoy it.

anyway, should i do maths instead of philosophy because maths is obviously respected highly but im predicted a high B at gcse so will i struggle do you think? 

or would english be more beneficial or more respected?

any advice is really appreciated :)

I got an A at GCSE for Maths and decided to take maths as an A-Level and it is so hard, there are 3 exams and there is so much information needed to be remembered, I have struggled for months with maths, especially with mechanics, which I have never done before, it is so hard, at another sixth form I applied for, people who got B's at GCSE maths that applied for A-Level maths had to get help with it because it is so hard, I'd suggest you really thing hard about if you want to take it because it takes up so much time and you really need to be dedicated to it, I have been revising for so many hours and am finding I have so much more to do, plus I am struggling to find time to revise for my other subjects. I really wouldn't take it unless I was 100% sure and I was determined to revise for hours for it. Although, I do enjoy it, it's just a lot to take in and if you do decide to take it, do not be fooled by the first few weeks as it is easy, it gets so much harder.

top unis especially russel group recommend 'facilitating subjects'(look them up) These are basically some of the most highly regarded subjects by unis. I am looking into doing law aswell and maths and english are both always good as it shows you are intelligent at they are very hard A levels. if you try and get your B up to an A maths watch clips really helped me!You could do english and maths instead of philosophy/ economics as to my knowledge unis prefer them. However at the end of the day if you enjoy philosophy and economics and get good grades in them they are still very good subjects.

i really recommend doing maths i was going to do rs and changed at the last minute i can't lie it is hard but once you get the hang of it it's not to bad. it will be really useful if you want to do economics and even if you change your mind unis really look up to it whatever degree you choose.
