    I'm picking my final subjects for A-levels but i can't decide on the final choice of either English Literature or Economics?
    The subjects I have already are Maths, Physics and Art.


    Those subjects are all quite different, have you got any ideas for what you want to study after college?

    Economics. Would also advise swapping art for further maths then you'll have a solid combo of subjects. Keep art as a hobby

    Economics defiantly, it ties in well with the Maths side of your subjects. Especially when you're doing subjects like Maths & Physics, English can be particularly hard because it's do different from them. I would suggest swapping Art aswell as the course work is so heavy. The suggestion for swapping it for Further Maths above is really good, however if you wanted to mix things up a bit, I would recommend computer science.

    Personally I would choose English literature because it keeps doors open to study English and humanities at uni should you choose to. It's also a useful one to have if you are interested in teaching English at college and to speakers of other languages.

    I think your existing combo is excellent based on having a good variety of subjects. I think it's important to keep your options open.

    Art is coursework heavy but that's not a reason to not do it. With doing maths anyway, this could be used as a route into studying economics at uni anyway should you choose to do this.
