    Economics or Legal Studies

    Subject help for HSC?

    Economics is challenging at times but really good. Business is easy but fun in a way and interesting. Ancient is pretty good, but i've also heard lots of people who love modern. Depends what you like. You can always change or drop stuff anyway (well in the first few weeks)
