    Im hoping to go down the route of becoming a lawyer in the future and i'm looking at 3 possible degrees to take

    -Philosophy
    -history

    however, i get A's in english but C's in history so i was wondering which would be my better bet because i've heard a range of different opinions

    This should not even be debatable. You are going to struggle getting on a decent history course with a C in history and you may not be very good at history at university meaning you will get a poor degree.

    Do English or do something else but don't do history.

    If you want to do law then philosophy would be the most beneficial. But you could get the best of all worlds by doing a joint-honours degree, and taking the odd unit in the third subject.

    They're about the same in terms of being respected. Though you should definitely opt for English (or Philosophy) as you'll achieve a better degree in those than in History.
