English Literature and History at A2 then the third shouldn't matter too much. I'd stay clear of Media. Sociology or Law are probably the most linked to History, but any will really be fine.

I'm in my third year of a history degree and I took History, English Lit, Psychology and Sociology at A2. I suggest you definitely do History and English and then chose whichever you most enjoy doing from the rest (I'd avoid Media though). Sociology probably came in the most useful for my degree but that's because I'm most interested in the sociological side of history. I actually enjoyed Psychology the most out of my A Levels though and I highly recommend it. It's also closely linked to Sociology.

Avoid drama and media, they won't be helpful at all (either in terms or content or getting into uni).

The others depend on what unis you are looking at.
As Eng lit and history are excellent 'traditional' subjects, you would be fine with (in order of preference, more preferred by top unis first) Philosophy/RS, psychology, law, sociology.
