    Yeah those subjects sound fine. The only thing i would suggest is maybe taking economics or maths.
    As long as you work hard then you should get decent results, regardles of the average results for your school.

    I do English Language, Law and History and have an a-level in literature... They are really interesting subjects... especially english language because you can orientate your coursework to whatever topic you like... so you could do something business related.
    Also the style of writing and research required for history is good for most degrees because it shows a uni that you have ideal writing skills... moreover, a classical subject like history is always well looked upon.

    Law is good but I imagine a business dgree would prefer to teach you the laws of business from scratch...

    I have friends doing business degrees and they had a wide range of subjects, some not business related but still got into good uni's... it's what you do with your subjects that matter...

    Plus it doesn't matter if your school isn't top class... there is so only so much your teachers can do for you alot is up to you... which I'm sure you'll be fine.
    Anyway... just think... you'll be the one making your school look good when you go to uni
    Hope that helped...

    Thanks for that emma!
    Ive heard you have to put a lot of own work into it, very independent.
    They dont do economics unfortunately in my school
    i considered doing maths
    but i got put off, the teachers basically said it is so hard
    and i was quite scared that if i picked it, i would fail
    what do you think of this
    so far i have done 3 modules and got a,b,b
    and then i have an exam at the end of the year and they all combine to give me a overall result for maths
    if i put the hard work in, could i do it?
