    I'm planning on doing English Combined, History, Politics and Psychology next year. Is this a good combination?
    I'm planning to go in to something to do with English, however I want to keep my options open.

    Will these help me get into a good uni?
    What are the subjects like?
    and how hard are they?

    I would suggest doing English lit only rather than combined esp if you're looking at doing English at uni - some places prefer lit only or want evidence of wider reading if you're doing the combined course. I personally did English lit, english lang (as sep. subjects) and psychology at A2 and found them enjoyable. It is as hard as you make it, really. You've got a good mix there.

    I'd say do English Lit, as it's more respected than combined,
    but otherwise your choices are good.

    I would also advise English Lit instead of English Combined.

    I would love to do English Lit, but my college only offers English Combined. This is one of the reasons I decided to choose it.

    Would most good unis still accept English Combined?

    If it was your only option then of course they will, just be prepared to show evidence of wider reading for poetry etc - apparently the combi course does not cover it that much. Check the individual requirements of courses to see if they will accept it or not
