i think i want to do a degree in law/ international relations/ human rights

the a levels I'm sure of are spanish and rs, and i am pretty certain about also doing history.

i need to decide between english lit, english lang and politics. i think politics would interest me and the grades for it at my school are generally very good, but i am aware it is probably less respected than english, and history&politics could possibly be a bit similar?

what are peoples opinions?!

Do English Lit, History, Spanish and RS. Politics can be a bit similar with History and English Lit is one of the most respected subjects you can do.

To be honest, I think English Lit or Politics would be your best bet. English Lit is generally speaking quite a highly respected A Level, not sure about Politics - it's not an easy one but I'm not sure if it has the same level of respect as English Lit.

Speaking as someone who does English Lit, it's a lot of reading and a lot of work, but I absolutely love it. If you ended up doing law I think it would be a really good A level to have because you'll be doing a hell of a lot of reading for law!

On the other hand, if you're not sure how much you enjoy English Lit and you think you'll enjoy Politics, then go for Politics. There's no point in taking a subject because you think it'll look better - it'll make you miserable if you don't enjoy it! And Politics would be good for International Relations or Human Rights probably.

Basically, it comes down to what you enjoy. I don't think it would matter too much which one you took, but if you do go for English Lit then make sure you're prepared for a lot of reading!
