    hi there im staying on at my sixth form and i am choosing the following subjects:
    History, Maths, English(lang,lit) and Business Studies
    are these good subjects, i understand that there very hard but im willing to put the work in
    ive been told that the history teacher isnt very good but she only does a couple of modules, thats put me off, but im deciding to do it though, am i making the right choice?
    advice of others who knows knowledge on the subjects and any advice would be nice

    It depends on what you want to do after A-levels, but as a general rule: History Maths and English are all good solid choices. Not so sure on Business Studies, but seeing as that's your fourth option I'm sure that's fine

    Depends what exam board you're on and your motivation to put in the extra work in to succeed in those subjects.
    I take 3 of those subjects you listed (bar Business) and they can be hard for some, but definitely not impossible with the right amount of motivation and work. They're pretty good choices, and with the exception of Business perhaps they're pretty highly regarded as decent subjects. Business might be regarded a little soft, but it's only the top unis that'll turn their nose up at it.
    Hope that helps.
