I am currently choosing my A-levels, and in the future I would like to go on to University to study Journalism, or anything English/Humanities based as they are the type subjects I am best at and enjoy most to follow on to a career (I love writing essays.) I have chosen to definitely take English Literature and History, but have to choose two other subjects. I think I will enjoy and put a lot of effort in to what ever I choose. It is just deciding which is really frustrating!
Here the subjects I am considering (I will not mention the subjects I don't like or any my school Sixth Form does not teach.) So I need to pick two from the list:
Which two will look the strongest and be more valued to Universities? And also which ones are good for a Journalism/Humanities course? I was thinking of taking Sociology (even though I heard it can be seen as soft), and Applied Science (just to mix up my skills a little.) Which do you think I should take? I don't want to take a bad mixture of subjects. I would like to take subjects which will look good, and also what I will also enjoy enough to do well in. I also would like to get in to a decent university!

Geography and Psychology sound good. Geography is a well respected subject and Psychology will definitely improve your essay writing skills. The top universities probably prefer A-levels rather than applied subjects, so Applied Science would probably not be the best choice.
If you add Georaphy and Psychology, you have an excellent mix.

Sociology is soft; Psychology is harder. Both are similar and you wouldnt be able to take both together; so imo take psychology if you're going to decide between the two.
Then take probably geography over appied science. Again, Geography is hard and Applied science is very soft/weak imo.
Best/Hardest/Most impressive combination = Geography and Psychology
