I'm choosing my A levels and one of the subjects I'm really interested in is Ancient History (rather than Classics ie. literature). I'm thinking of taking Biology or Chemistry, Archaeology, History and Geography. Would this allow me to take Ancient History with the humanities being a strong enough combination? Some university sites don't even mention Classical Civilisation and others (like Durham) say
"Not at all, but you will have to make sure that your personal statement demonstrates clearly why you want to study the classical world and how this desire relates to the rest of your studies. You will also need to convey to us that you are familiar with the subject and the sort of material you will be studying at university. If your interest was piqued by reading or activities outside of school, tell us about them."
So is that 'it doesn't matter' or a 'we may consider you'. Any help?
(I've put this in the university forums but I'm interested to see where I'll get the best response after not getting one in the Classics forum there.)

Sounds perfectly fine to me. Don't over-analyse -- admissions tutors rarely have time to!
