    I've been to my college 'taster' day and decided I do NOT want to do Physics. I have Maths, Computing and History: Classics as 3 I definitely want to do. However, and University I am unsure as to whether I want to do a Computer Science degree (hence Computing and Maths) or a History degree (yes I know, opposite spectrums...). What 4th subject should I take that is respectable, will be viewed well by top 20 universities regarding getting onto a History course, but not English Language or English Literature? I've been put off them for life due to my GCSE teacher seemingly making it her mission to ruin my life. Government and Politics? Business Studies? Psychology? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    4h subject doesn't matter you apply with three predicted grades - you just have to well in it, you can choose an easy 4th and do 3 harder more relevant subjects its cool. Just don't do general studies or something really soft like childcare and sorry to say it but media (sorry media people) some unis dont accept media/film/photography etc you get my drift, pick something you are interested in but choose something you will do well in. The science subjects are all very hard imo so if I were you I'd take something like economics, which is pretty easy with a low workload comparable to history.

    For a computer science, further maths would be extremely useful (and pretty much necessary at top unis).
