    you can do any subject to get into journalism, make sure u have a variety of soft and hard sujects. That being said, I suggest dropping Chemistry and doing something like English Lit or English lit/lang (thats if ur good at it) because its closely linked with the writing aspect of journalism.

    Was that towards journalism or politics?

    And could I still get on to a politics/political science course if I dropped history after AS? (So for A2 Id be doing Economics, Maths, Chemistry)?

    Thanks

    Probably.

    I'm no admissions tutor but they are a good choice of subjects.

    Also if you decide not to do a Politics/Journalism course then you can do Economics instead.
