To some extent, I'd say so. The level of essay writing expected of you is higher - you're expected to be able to do more things at once basically and to a higher standard.

Thankyou! I love english, so I would be happy with essays but my school A2 course is Ireland in the 1900s, so there is a lot to cover...do you think doing RE, English and Sociology would mean too man essay subjects??

Depends on the person and what History course you are doing. I never did GCSE History, so when I started it at AS level I found it very hard to get high marks, especially in the source papers. But by the time I went into the A2 year I found it much easier.

3 is fine - plenty of people do similar combinations. Besides, if history was your 4th AS, which is also essays, it doesn't make much difference

You don't think universities would care I have no maths/ science? I like bio too but i don't do chemistry for GCSE which teachers have said makes it hard..but I guess it won't matter too much

Only if you're applying to a scientific course or one that requires such subjects. If you're applying for an essay-based degree then it won't matter.
