I have to pick my A-Levels by tomorrow but I am really stuck. I'm not allowed to do five so I have to pick four out of these:

Economics: I haven't done it before but it is really interesting and apparently I have a natural talent at it.

English Literature: My best subject. I love it. I want to be a writer and I am especially good at analysis.

History: I really enjoy it and the A-Level topics interest me. Not sure about one of the teachers, but I will only have them for a term.

Japanese: I really, REALLY love Japanese. I am predicted an A/A* and there will only be two of us doing it next year so that will be good, too. It interests me and will be useful in later life.

Maths: I am doing an iGCSE and also Additonal Maths. My Maths teacher is trying to put me off because I am not the best in my class but still quite good, and she is apparently trying to put everyone off anyway. I would have to take Maths to pursue an Economics degree.

Thank you so much in advance. I don't really know what I want to do but I want to keep my options open. At the moment I'm thinking PPE, Oriental Studies or English Literature.

I'd say Maths, English and Japanese definitely.

If you like History and think you'd be good at it, you should choose that because an Economics A Level isn't essential for an Economics degree. History is a facilitating subject which is good as you're trying to keep your options open. (If you think you'd get a better grade in Economics though then you should pick it)

Further Maths would be beneficial for a straight Economics degree but I don't think you need it for PPE.

OMG! Japanese! I would DEFO take that, love that language planning to learn it in Uni along side my English degree next year! I think English (which I do too xD A2 is very interesting) Maths and ECO? Or Maths and History, depends on what you want to do in Uni tbh.

I did a combination of Maths and Eng Lit as well, would defo reccommend it. If you are finding maths easy at the moment, i would recommend further maths. Other than that, Japanese is a great choice.
