    Bit of a weird competition type thing!

    Mine are:

    English Literature
    Maths and Further Maths (I might drop FM later this year...)
    Music
    Economics

    Who else thinks their subject combo is a bit random and mixed?

    I did Sociology, History and English. Not random at all.

    I find it is always random those who do English and Maths as they are complete opposites.

    Nope, mine are all pretty similar; French, English, lit, history and sociology, purely because I hate maths and science!

    mine are actually annoying but bio and chem together makes it less random.

    methinks the most random you could have it would be: art, maths, RE, french (or another language) ?

    I think some form of Maths as well as English should be compulsary after GCSE's if you proceed to do A-Levels.

    Yours are random, Phonicsdude.

    Maybe you need the maths/english clash to qualify for random.

    No way! I would have hated staying on if that was the case, and I'm sure lots of others feel the same. 11 years of maths was enough! And I know 11 years of English was enough for some people.

    I'm taking German, History, English (Lit...I think...), which is fairly normal, but then I'm doing Maths as well! Although I'd really rather not.

    I'm pretty good at it (Already taken AS this year, but I got a C and a B in the first two modules, so will just do it again next year to improve my grades) and I guess it's good to have a contrasting subject. I find it quite easy so I don't really mind doing it, I just don't see the point in it!

    But maths and english are the two fundamental subjects. Too many people are doing courses that don't equip them with any skills whatsoever.

    Are you talking about English language or literature, Gaz? Skills learnt through GCSE English (language) are developed in a variety of ways in arts-based A-level subjects - essay writing, oral communication etc. Literature, on the other hand...

    I don't think any maths beyond GCSE is needed at all.

    Its much easier doing subjects that interlink in some way.
    For example, doing maths, physics and chemisty would be easier than doing Maths, English and French, purely because the subjects in the former do overlap in many ways, and skills needed are very similar.
    Although the later is arguably a better combination, as you will be developing a greater diversity of skills.
