    It's definitely worth choosing either a science maths or an English subject and also choosing something that you enjoy doing in first year that you can then drop in second year or keep on if you want. It's also best to keep your options related to each other

    Don't worry about your choice too much at this stage. At the sixth form I go to, we had the option to change courses right up until October half term, to make sure we were happy with our choices.
    In my opinion, that's a little too late, but I'm sure you're school/college will allow you to change your mind before term starts.

    It really depends on what you want to take at university, what you enjoy and which subjects you are most likely to do well in because A level so much harder than GCSE, and if you don't enjoy the subject you will fin it so much harder to get a good grade in it than if you do enjoy it.

    haha

    seriously annoys me when I'm in a free period and see all the Media Studies people sitting at the computers editing a bloody magazine with a picture of themselves on the front cover stressing about how they might not get it finished in time

    oh please

    I don't see why anyone would choose easy subjects like media or film because fair enough you may have a good time in sixth form but after that your screwed unless you want to do a media degree which may just land you a job in primark if your lucky!

    Looked at the course content, I'd go for Economics, Maths, English Lit and then any other subject of your choice.

    If I was you I'd take the safe option and choose english maths or science as these are guaranteed to open doors whereas with more specific subjects eg media there's a limit to what you can do with them!

    If you're not too sure what to do, consider doing:

    English
    A Science
    Maths
    History/Geography

    These are all facilitating subjects, meaning they're highly regarded by universities and they'll keep a lot of options open to you! Have you thought about doing the IB instead?
