    With this, you could persue a degree in: media, english, journalism,law,history (something along those areas)

    However, if you swapped 'English Lit' with 'Chemisty' It could other doors for you, (mainly in the science sector): i.e.; pharmacology, biochemisty, midwifery, nursing

    and what if i swapped 'Biology' for 'Chemistry?

    If you'll be able to cope with the workload, I would do:
    Chemistry
    Biology
    History
    English Literature

    It'll open up opportunities for medicine, journalism, law, history etc. Providing you have decent grades, you could pursue whatever route you wanted; humanities or sciences based.

    (Btw, English literature is miles better than 'economics')

    Hi!! With the first option you can go into art courses like metioned in the other post. If you have chemistry then you can do most science courses that don't require Mathematics, you can do law, buss, management, biochemistry....

    If you swap biology for chemistry then the options will be similar but instead of more towards the living science you could go into chemistry related courses. I think you could maybe take Maths A Level because this will also look very good and will mean you can also go into Economics seeing that you want to do the Economics A Level and most top unis will require maths.

    Good Luck I hope this was helpful.

    Maybe you should consider what you want to do at degree/in your job and try and pick A-levels around that, rather than the other way round?
    Just an idea, because of course you may not have a clue what you want to do.
