Anyone have any advice about whether I should take economics at a level. I'm also thinking of taking maths, geography and sociology. X

Well economics goes nicely with maths, and there are parts in economics, like negative externalities that focus on pollution, and other parts like globalisation that go nicely with geography.
Depends whether you would like to do anything in with economics in the future, like at university and if so then definitely take economics.
Economics is a great a level to do, very well respected by universities and is very relatable to the economic decisions that we take on a daily basis and also the economic decisions that are taken by governments.
If you enjoy watching the news and would like to learn more about the economic analysis that underpins government decisions and how such decisions affect individuals, consumers or firms then economics is definitely for you.
However, bear in mind that economics is quite essay based, and combined with geography and sociology a levels, you may have to do quite a few essays, if that is something that doesnt bother you then go for it :)
