    Hi, I really want to go to university when I'm older and study English, History and Geography. I'm also considering becoming a secondary school teacher.
    So basically in my school basic Science isn't compulsory and I chose not to do it because I hate Science. But I was just wondering if I stand the same chance as everyone else if I don't have any basic science qualification.
    Also what do you think of my GCSE choices

    English language(compulsory)
    Maths (compulsory)
    Religious education(compulsory)
    English Literature
    Business studies
    History
    Geography
    Journalism
    Citizenship (compulsory)
    German

    Universities (and colleges/sixth forms for that matter) only ask for English Language and Maths GCSEs. Considering you'll be applying for a humanity, having a science at GCSE shouldn't disadvantage you. Universities in general don't look at GCSE subjects (apart from Maths and English) but the grades you achieve. The GCSEs you've picked look good, particularly German - always good to have a MFL! I personally do Spanish at GCSE

    P.S. The bit I've highlighted in bold - I don't think there's a degree that encompasses all three subjects. There are combined honours e.g. History and English, English and Geography, but there isn't an awarded degree in English, History and Geography as far as I know. Unless you're talking about A-Levels. In that case that would be a perfect combination (ensure you take 4 ASs - but don't worry about that yet!)
