    Mine are incredibly similar! My friends moan at me for just doing the same thing day in day out! I take History, English Literature, French and Classical Civilisation. Class Civ is like History/English/History of Art but for A2 my coursework would be history based and the other modules Englishy. History and English Lit obviously go very well together and I managed to insert quite a bit of history into my French stuff and French helped me with studying the French Revolution and understand English better.

    well possibly not random, but when you consider i'm going to uni to do psychology (as apposed to a physics, Maths or ICT related course - which is what most people expected), it becomes a different matter!

    I don't understand why some ppl are saying that there choices are random when they are just varied. I mean doing one science subject with two or three arts or one scince with the rest being arts is a good idea for something to show that you can do more than one thing as well as having something to fall back on if worst comes to worst.

    Yep. I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, physics, maths and German. I was going to do further maths instead of German, but it makes a change from sci and maths

    I did Art, Maths, Physics and Geography. Obviously Maths and Physics go together, but the other two don't really complement. I don't think it's weird to do varied subjects, but when people ask me what I'm studying and then I say art I've always got strange reactions, like you're doing science based subjects, what are you doing art for? I just really enjoy Art, it gives me a welcome break as it's so different. I also know loads of other people who have taken similar combinations to me.

    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'm not about people being forced to pursue an A-Level course but they should have to pursue some course (and not something silly like key skills). Perhaps we should replace general studies with a course that seeks to promote proper use of the english language as well as numeracy.

    I don't think any maths beyond GCSE is needed at all.
    I disagree. Most people use math ideas all the time subconciously. While you might not think ideas such as trigonometry are essential to people who aren't going to be involved in science and technology it teaches you a certain way to think.

    Mine were so unrandom, I don't think it's possible to get less random:

    Politics, Economics, History, Philosophy (with Psychology at AS)

    Weirdest you could concievably have done where I went:

    Accounting, Classical Civilization, Dance, Geology, and Music Technology

    I do/did Maths, F. Maths, Chemistry, Physics and now for the weirdness factor... History and English Literature... Though, they aren't that random in combination, as they are fairly academic and traditional, I guess

    I was good at science but I got really fed up with it. I do miss physics though, which I gave up ironically because it looked like it had to much maths in it? My logic is a bit weird.

    I did maths because I thought I would miss a bit of logical thinking amongst all my wordy 'explain stuff' subjects. I gave physics a miss partly cos I wanted the others more and partly because only some of the syllabus interested me, most of it is mechanics and I don't enjoy that.

    I did Psychology, Art and IT 'A' Levels, at a first glance you wouldn't think they are interlinked at all but -

    Art + IT = Graphic Design/Animation
    Psychology + Art = Art therapy
    IT + Psychology = errrrr Organisatiol Psych/Managment?!

    OK I struggled with the last one, but anyhoo when I chose my subjects I didn't think about whether they went together, I just chose them cos I liked them
