Religious Studies shouldn't be taken along side Philosophy, even if your 6th form offers both as separate A Levels; they are the same thing in terms of subject combination, just with a different focus.

No RS? I would do RS over maths if OP wants to do philosophy
A perfect combination is Maths, Philosophy/Religious Studies, English Literature/History, Biology/Psychology.
Obviously subjects like languages, Chemistry, Physics, Politics, etc. can be taken depending on your interest. Just make sure there is an academic balance.

Who actually told you that? Do they have the appropriate credentials? I hate how subjects with no specific requirements prefer subjects that are not related to them though... For instance, some medicine courses do not require Biology! This is insane...

I was always told the perfect combination for subjects without specific requirements but ask for a mix between the liberal arts and sciences is Biology, English Literature, History and Maths. Your combination is definitely great too! The same as mine bar Biology.

Hence i said it is USEFUL. The BEST combination would include a Maths or science. However, as you say, it can be learnt, but to prove your capabilities across a broad range of subjects Maths and science would help attain a place at a top university. When I say 'help' I do not mean it as a necessity!

With the appropriate training and external reading mathematical logic and philosophy of science are fairly easy to grasp. Mathematics may be involved in Philosophy but you do not NEED to have done it at A Level to do well at university in Philosophy!
