    Please reply quick as I have to send it off today.

    Hi, I went to a sixth form yesterday and they gave me an application form and I must go to my secondary school today to get a reference and then send it of along with my courses I wish to choose. I am not intelligent and only got 5 C's, 1 A and 1 D so choosing Maths, English, Chemisty, Biology and Physics is out the window.

    Which courses would be better of the ones that I put?

    History, Economics, Sociology and Theology.
    History, Economics, Law, Theology.
    History, Economics, Geography, Theology
    History, Economics, Law, ICT.
    History, Economics, Sociology, ICT.
    History, Economics, Geography, ICT.

    Economics, Sociology, Theology, History.
    Economics, Law, Theology, Sociology.
    Economics, Geography, Theology, Sociology.
    Economics, Law, ICT, Sociology.
    Economics, Law, ICT, History.
    Economics, Geography, ICT, Sociology.

    History, Economics, Law, Sociology.


    Basically I have to pick one of these, but I'm not sure at the moment cause I am not intelligent and I really do not want to fail. What do you think the best four to take is? And what gives me the best uni course? I dont know what to do at uni yet.

    Thanks.

    At the moment I'm getting drawn in by Economics, Law, Theology and Sociology. I also would like to do Theology cause I got an A in religious studies in my GCSE's.

    I would advise doing what you think you'd enjoy most. If you enjoy something you're going to be more inclined to do work for it and will generally get a better mark for it.

    They all seem quite interesting and I can say from expirience, History and Law are hard but with a bit of hard work, definitely enjoyable.

    I wouldnt base your decision to do one though on the fact you got an A in RE.

    Thanks, the only thing that puts me off history is the amount of coursework and essays (that's what i've heard). I'm also sure Sociology would have just as much coursework and essays but that subject seems to interest me more.

    I'd go for History, Economics, Geography and ICT. If you like Theology, however, do it. Do what you feel you like.
