    Tough one. I'd personally go for History and English Lit to complement each other. Or Philosophy and Psychology. Yet Economics is the only one to match Math and Physics.

    unit 6-the uk in the global economy

    I think it would be quite difficult to do English Lit as distance learning, I would recommends Philosophy or Economics. Economics is the best to go with Maths/Physics, but philsophy gives more breadth.

    You dont know that you would only like the nazi stuff, you might find if/when you study things in more detail that you are actually interested in other bits too.

    Possibly because you're not in a class situation so dont have other people to bounce ideas off and discuss things with?

    YOu have to consider that you've taken maths and physics, subjects which will need a lot of understanding and determination therefore somehthing easy or lets say less work needed to pass is relevent,
    English is essays, history is memory/understanding psychology is similar, will actually psychology is a good choice if you're a person who has an interest in the brain and stuff its a good option for you, i don't know much about philosopy and economics, but i've heard philosophy is difficult to get by

    i think that my best attribute would probably memory, so history would suit me, but the topics other than nazi history doesnt appeal to me. I do not like the statistical aspects in psychology, and is philosophy academically regarded?, plus the college where id have to sit the exam is pretty far away.

    How do you know they dont interest you when you havent even started it?

    I said exactly the same thing when I started GCSE history...because our group was allocation Ireland (the other group got to do American West and I wanted to do that) but it turned out to be my favourite module!

    Yeah, but the point I was trying to make is that you shouldnt dismiss something as not interesting until you've tried it.

    But you cant go through life quitting everything just because there are parts you dont like - else you'll never get anywhere.

    I'm sure most people find there are parts to their courses that they dont like, and parts they love - you just have to persevere.
