Most people seem to fall into one of two camps, either Maths / Further Maths / Chemistry / Physics or English, History, etc (or is it just me?) — either way, I met a girl the other day who was doing maths, further maths, English lit and art, which I thought was awesome. There's also a girl I know who's doing economics, maths and Mandarin, which is even more awesome.

What do you think are the "best" / most impressive A-level combinations in that sense?

I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, English Language & Literature and Graphics, so I guess a 50/50 split? Not that weird but a lot of people are surprised when I tell them.

I did biology, chemistry, history and English lit for AS - I think going half science/half humanities has a lot of benefits. I wasn't limiting my options and although I wanted to do biochemistry at the beginning of year 12, I'm now going off to do an English degree in September and I wouldn't have had that opportunity had I done only science based subjects. I think most subjects have their own academic merits although knowing first hand the effort and different skills required for humanities and science subjects, I'd say combinations are rather impressive
