Hi, so at the moment I'm in year 11 and would like to study History at uni if all goes to plan. I have already chosen my 4 A-levels but am seriously considering switching.
So far I have chosen:
- English literature
I have heard that Politics isn't deemed as such a strong subject and is only considered as a 4th subject in places like Cambridge. Is this true? However it does link nicely with Economics and History I guess.
As a result, I have been seriously considering taking French instead in order to have 4 solid A-level subjects, possibly dropping it at the end of year 12. I don't really enjoy it as much but I'm in the top set for French and having done past GCSE papers I have been getting in the 90s in terms of percent. I understand A-level would be much harder but is there a great difference involved? Is it worth taking in my position?

French is always a good A-Level to have, having a language can really give you a good start in life But I have heard that it is much harder than GCSE, politics is key in history so I don't think that would be too much of an issue.
