Career wise I would probably like to go into the social science area, possibly politics, and have applied for the current A levels at the college I start in September:

English Literature
Maths
Government & Politics
Geography

All pretty standard subjects that should look good for going to Uni if i do well. However, the college also offers World Development which is not so well recognised but looks amazing! I would really like to do it but don't want to study 5 subjects - should I replace one of my original 4 with WD or just forget it?

Thanks

I have but I don't want to be a lawyer... and believe I would enjoy my chosen subjects more.

I'd pick what you enjoy most rather that what's more well known or highly regarded. Even though some subjects are less well known, you'll come across better in an interview/personal statement if you can talk enthusiastically about your subjects and why you like them and what you've gained from them. It's better to do two years doing what you enjoy rather than doing a subject you don't like as much just in case, and you're more likely to do well at what you enjoy.

Id stick with the a-levels you have chosen. They are good a-level choices. The world development may sound good, but it isnt anywhere near as well known or respected. So id stick with the ones you've got.
