    OK guys i've decided to go back to my initial subject choices, but I'm stuck whether to choose between History or Geography; OR whether i should do BOTH History and Geography and DROP English Literature:

    -Maths
    -Further Maths
    -English Literature <- (may keep or drop)
    -Physics
    -History/Geography (either drop one and keep the other or do both and drop English Lit.)

    Thanks for your help.

    Good choices.
    If I were you I'd keep English Lit and do History as well, if you're considering Law at university.

    Further Maths
    Maths
    Geography
    Physics
    English Literature.
    is much more likely to get you somewhere better in life than taking:

    (Original post by silly options)
    English Literature
    Geography
    Law
    Psychology
    Philosophy.
    where in my opinion and most universities opinion the ones i put in italics are pretty much useless even if you do want to go into those 3 in the future

    but in the end you must only chose what you are happy with, i gave my opinion but if you like those 5 then you should take them instead of doing stuff you dont like and will never use in your life

    I don't know just yet. I'm trying to keep my options as open as possible.

    I'm definitely choosing English Literature then. Now I just have to decide and weigh the pros/cons for History and Geography; and then choose either one.

    Thanks for the help piece_by_piece. :yy:

    Forget the pros and cons. They are both academically strong subjects. Pick the one you enjoy the most - you're much more likely to excel if you have a passion for it.

    me too! hence why i chose stats with maths. i think decision is a bit pointless tbh.

    can't you change? at my college you can choose to do stats, decision or mechanics (the latter for physics students)

    Decision would only be 1/3 of the course (if you do AQA like me) and to be fair, it's the easiest of the options. if you get As in core 1 and 2 then you'll find D1 a doddle

    Maybe do further if you hate decison that much? i'd be suprised if they wouldn't let you do stats. cos with further you must to a bit of stats, decision and mechanics.

    don't let deciison stop you from doing maths at all. honestly, maths as level is great. it's my fav subject so far, along with french
    Decision Maths ain't that bad, its really just about memorising your Algorithms....but nothing beats the pure stuff.
