I've been lurking on these forums for a while now and still haven't come to a solid conclusion, probably because all I see are opinions and we all know how varied they can be. But... i need some more opinions
For my A Levels i want to choose english language, literature, philosophy and psychology (which i am comfortable with) OR lit and lang combined, biology, philosophy and psychology (i'm not a very science-y person, if i worked really hard at biology i might get a C maybe a B)
On the one hand, you have people saying it's the grade that matters, and it's the grade that unis look at first so choose subjects that you know you'll get that all important A in.
But then i found out about soft subjects and the less repected subjects and the blacklisted subjects and this thread ranking the subjects according to how respected they are by unis and it made me think twice about my choices; that maybe a C in biology is better than an A in eng lang.
I know it all depends on what I'm going to study at uni and it will most likely be a dergree in one of the arts and humanities subjects, but i might also want to do a degree in something related to the environment e.g. geography, geology etc. which might require a science.
So in your experience TSR, which of the two should i go with;
english language, literature, philosophy and psychology (likely I'll get high grades)
lit and lang combined, biology, philosophy and psychology (not to comfortable with biology and will have to work extra hard. I've heard it's all just a matter of remembering facts and wording the answers in the exact right way, which i could do okay in if i worked very hard)
TL;DR Is having a science worth it if i'll most likely get a C?
Which is more important; the grade or the subject? Watch

at the end of the day it matters to what you want to do, with looking at unis as well
pick what you what you want to do, and sometimes need to do
its all well and good going out and doing the likes of maths physic, or even bio in your case, but if you hate it well you be having a fun year, and if you only walk away with a E
end of the day do what you want to do, what you really want to do and enjoy it
