    History and classic civilisation, are university classics and are two of the original subjects to be taught at university level, so are both renowned and respected by universities... and are rather enjoyable.

    I'm always one for a mix.

    Here's my preference:

    One science: Chemistry/Biology/Physics...
    One essay-based subject: History/English/Politics...
    One creative subject: Art/Music/Drama...
    One language: French/German/Japanese...

    etc.

    I'd say that just one science isn't great for anything - none or two is ideal

    One science is perfect for Architecture. In fact most schools take candidates that have both arts and science based subjects.

    Admittedly I do do two sciences: Maths and Chemistry, but I also do Art, History, and Italian.

    In which case you need biology and chemistry, and then any two that you want. Your 3rd and 4th subjects do not really matter.

    It really depends on your university/life aspiration.

    Even though I didn't take History at A'level, I would have to agree that it does require a substantial amount of thinking & it teaches you important skills needed to tackle any problem.

    For me, It will be History, English Lit, Economics. Just pick the one you will need in Uni or will contribute to your chosen course in Uni
    That's good as I'm studying Economics, English Lit and History.

    Best arts subjects -

    Economics
    English
    History
    Politics
    Philosophy

    All are interesting in one way or another, and if chosen together they link very well.

    Pretty sure engineering is fine so long as you have physics and maths.

    languages > all other subjects (aha, well that's just what I think )

    um but any traditional subjects, though of course it depends on what you want to do at uni/as a career

    Depends on where you're applying and the type of engineering.
