    I'm selecting my A level choices fairly soon and I think I want to do, English lit, History, government and politics and theatre studies. Are these options ok? I would really love to study HSPS at Cambridge, so any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!

    I know current HSPS students with the first three. It's a pretty varied course in terms of discipline but also where people have come from - I did Maths, Chemistry, History and EngLit which is an unusual combination but not unheard of amongst current students. If your heart isn't set on sciences then don't worry, but weirdly I find some of the principles and practices from my Chemistry A Level continue to help in HSPS, so keep your horizons broad!
