    I'm so unsure of what I'd like to do in the future. I don't know what degree I want to do or what career I want, I do like the thought of having control of my own business though. So, I thought business would be a good option. I definitely want to do English literature and sociology. Would business, sociology, politics and English literature be good enough for a business degree? Or is something like economics essential because I don't want to do that.

    Sorry it's a little all over the place, but would these subjects suffice?

    Hi did business and sociology and got in to study business economics and finance. They are good choices because you have English and politics so it shows you can produce a good arguement and think clearly. Hope this helps

    So:

    Business Studies
    English Literature
    Sociology
    Politics

    One thing I want to mention though, is top unis probably won't make offers as you have one definitely "soft" subject. Sociology I don't think is highly respected and G&P isn't on.the list for facilitating subjects.

    English Literature would be your only highly respected traditional subject.

    Would you consider maths or history or a science?

    As you don't want to do econ.

    Honestly do not take maths I quit maths because you spend hours every night doing the homework and you don't have a social life. The alevels I took were business, economics, history and sociology. Personally I'd take a soft subject like sociology easy to pass I got an A, business is interesting, then pick two subject you actually like because otherwise you will not enjoy it, but English is good and politics however maybe drop politics and change it to history becuase you will team it up with your English you should do well and history is seen as a more traditional subject. I got into every uni I applie for which was Sussex, Manchester, York, Exeter and Kings. What unis are you applying for?

    Politics is the best thing I do I absolutely love it! Seriously it's so interesting and because I doubt you did it at GCSE learning about something new completely is so much more interesting so I am so I am so much more motivated to revise it!

    Swap business or sociology for something more academic, preferably maths.

    Those subjects sound pretty good really.
    Before you deffinately make any decisions though, you might also want to look into doing law or geography.
