this is my first thread, so I would appreciate kind replies.
Okay.. like a lot of other people, I really need to confirm my subject choices for next year. I have chosen to do:
Law (AQA), English Literature (AQA), Art (AQA) and History (Edexcel). I really hope to also do the EPQ.
I am really trying to maximise my chances, and I know it would be ideal to do subjects like Maths and the Sciences, but I would really not be able to get an A in any of those ...
In terms of subject choice, do you think these subjects are okay for doing a History Degree hopefully at one of the top Universities? I was thinking of doing a History degree, and then doing Law.
So, if you are on/applying to do a History Degree, what kind of subjects will generally maximise my chances?
Please be kind

Generally for History it is better that you avoid the maths and sciences and do more essay based subjects anyway. The choices you've picked should be fine; I did History, English Literature, Sociology and RE and got an interview at Oxford along with offers from Durham, Leeds and York.
Good luck with your A levels and enjoy TSR!

I agree, I think your choices are great You could always do philosophy instead of art because I think sometimes parts of philosophy can overlap with law, but then again art is a nice break from the essay subjects

With at least English Lit and History I don't think you can go too wrong
