    What exam board are you on? I'm on aqa and we do opinion articles as part of the exam which is creative writing
    I was also AQA. When I say creative writing, I mean writing stories.

    Ah, I get you. There did used to be a course called 'creative writing' I know for certain on aqa but the government put a stop to it 👏🏻
    I love my English so maybe I am being a bit defensive but I can understand how it could be boring

    My advisor has been trying to get me to go for Gov&Pol, History and Philosophy, though I've had people tell me that my chosen uni will think the latter is too 'wishy-washy'.
    Philosophy is not seen as a wishy washy subject at all. This list can help you: http://www.trin.cam.ac.uk/admissions...l-combinations obviously not the be all and end all but it's from Cambridge so a pretty good guide.

    I did English Lang Lit (mixed course) Classical Civilisation and Philosophy & Ethics. Everyone said they were crap subjects - I got offers for Law from UCL, Warwick, Southampton, Nottingham and another that I've forgotten but I only applied to top unis and I got offers from them all.

    [e] You'll see on that list that Psychology, Sociology and English Language are all 'limited suitability' and I think that's a pretty accurate description, they are generally viewed as soft subjects - best to only do one of them or even better, as just a fourth AS.
