    Hey people.
    I'm about four months from taking my GCSE'S (taking them in January) and I am currently doing higher papers in all my subjects which are:
    • physics
      english lit
      english lang
      religious studies
      I.c.t (computers) Short course which is compulsory at my school.

    I have to choose my A levels by december, and I'm not entirely sure what i want to do but right now i think im doing
    • History
      English lit (i would do lang but there is only a literature option at my school)
      Theology and Philosophy of Religion

    I dont think i would drop any for a2 but if i had to it would be philosophy. are these good A levels? and what can i do with them when i am thinking about university courses? thanks for any help.

    Hi there, your choice gives you solid basis for a wide range of Arts and Humanities degrees which involve reading, essay writing and analysis of arguments. What sort of subjects do you think you would want to study at uni?

    english, history and philosophy are great humanities options and would teach you some great writing and anylitical skills

    having biology in there does make you diverse but if you wanted to take biology further, to uni level, I don't think you'd be able to because of your lack of a second science, so that would have to be something to consider

    but those options are all great, do you know what you want to do at uni?
