Okay. I'll try and keep this short and sweet.
I most definitely wish to study
- English Literature
but I'm undecided (and utterly confused! ) on my fourth A-Level. I was considering one of:
I understand that Computing is completely unrelated to the subjects I've chosen. I know basic binary conversion and HTML and would be keen to develop this interest further.
Politics I feel would compliment English Lit and History but that being said, I'd then be doing four essay-based A-Levels. I love me an essay but would there be too many essays? There also seems a lot to remember!
Chemistry, however, seems like a good option. But I'm not the most amazing chemist (I've got As in Unit 2 and coursework and a C in Unit 1 (I'm going to retake in June)) and I've heard it gets very difficult at AS level.
Are there any other A-Levels that would go well with my choices? (I looked at Classical Civilization but my planned college doesn't offer it )
Oh, and if this is of any use, I'm planning on studying English Literature at university and would drop the fourth A-Level after my first year.
-EDIT- Bit of a fail on the short and sweet idea...!

Out of the choices I'd say Politics. A few English novelists/playwrights etc. wrote with some sort of political influence/bias. In Politics there are areas of Political Philosophy that link in with English and philosophy. History is heavily influenced by Politics too, because the different world leaders throughout the eras are influenced by their political decisions.
So I'd personally say Politics, but then I'm studying A level politics and am finding it really enjoyable even if some of the content is hard work and the quotes a pain to revise (but then I have two subjects where I have to revise quotes!)

Actually, you can draw links between philosophy and computing, but with your other subjects I'd suggest doing politics.
