    Okay so I know that I really want to apply to Cambridge but I have no idea which subject I want to do? I've narrowed it down to Classics or History but I keep flipping between the two.
    At as-level History was my lowest grade (I got a B, 3 marks from an A) but it was the subject that I was best at throughout the year and Classics was my highest grade (I got an A - 176/200) but my lowest predicted grade. So i'm pretty lost, any advice would help.

    Problem is, I love learning, I don't really mind what it is that I learn? ahahaha

    Look at the syllabus and see which three years of knowedhe you would prefer.
    Check course offers and see which one is most difficult to get into. Does Classics have a Greek and Latin component?
    Yalk to students studying that subject and find out things like level of work, enjoyment etc. The guides normally give an idea of student satisfaction. Score each subject against the selected criteria and see if one comes out a winner.

    I think someone needs a bit of spanking..... I mean, good advice.

    I leave the task to someone else as my hands hurt too much and tired already......
