    Then there's no reason you should. Take the subjects you enjoy.

    Oh don't be silly maths alevel is not the most important, especially when there's a good chance you'd fail it. Classics and history are great, go for them.

    So I will take classics and History along with ICT and business studies.
    Is this a good range and a good combination of subjects? Please don't tell me to choose computing instead of ICT or economics instead of business studies because they don't do them at my school

    Classics and History are great. I'm pretty open minded, but some people would consider ICT/Business to be a bit micky mouse (let's not beat around the bush.) If your main concern is succeeding in getting into the best universities, well you're not doing yourself a favour by choosing them, but if you're slightly normal don't worry about that and go for it.

    I do ICT.. it's a good subject to do. Although it's not that respected in the rose-tinted world of academia, industry respect it alot and it's a very good A Level to do.

    look, im just offering some advice, why i would i want to talk **** or give **** advices to other people? If you look through the prospectus many degrees require you to have a-level maths and almost all the science and business related courses ( thats alot of degrees) says it requires you to do a-level maths or prefers you to have a-level maths, so you get an advantage if you do a-level maths. Do you know any other a-levels that is so sought after by admission tutos from such a wide range of courses?

    If you do an A Level because universities 'like it', and the person who actually has to spend 2 years of their lives learning the material and sitting examinations doesn't like it - then that's pretty pisspoor advice to give out. In his first post - he asked about History and Classics.. whats that got to do with Maths? Why mention it? It's bizarre.. all you ever do you regurgitate ******** you have read on university websites, time tables etc.. without thinking much for yourself. Maths isn't 'the most important' A Level to have.. it varies in importance from person to person - that's such a stupid statement to make because you have no idea what route this person wants to take after College.

    the first question the post-starter asked is : Are history and classics 'respected' subjects by unis. I thought not , that is my opinion, and what is the justice of you give me a negative rep? :confused:

    I didn't give you negative rep, and I've never given out any sort of rep to anyone. At least another person sees you talk out your arse at least.

    I do agree with you on this one. The guy was referring to Classics and history, and he did say that he was no good at Maths, therefore this does close the option completely.
