    My other subjects will be Eng Lit, History and Drama. I plan to audition for drama schools as I've always wanted to become an actor. If I fail to get into any drama schools, I plan to do Law at Oxbridge. I wanted to take Psychology but I read online that Oxbridge has a list of 'blacklisted' subjects. Since Drama is already one of the subjects, I thought Psychology would further deter my chances of getting in.

    Definitely not Class Civ, that is one of those 'blacklisted' subjects. History of Art will go really well with your other subjects - it's enjoyable and really interesting

    Don't listen to the other poster, Classical Civilisation is definetly not a 'blacklisted' subject!! If Law is your back-up option then i think Classical Civilisation will be better than History of Art, however it is really up to what you would prefer as both are interesting subjects.

    My course has some parts of Art History and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. Its not too intense with essays and our version of Design History was really influential on my practical work and other aspects of my course.

    Btw I study at Plymouth Unversity: 3D Design

    But it depends where you're studying the subject - if your school/college is really good at a certain subject then that will probably help in deciding
