    Ok so I have to pretty much decide by next week which A levels in going to take, and I'm still not sure what to do.

    I have always preferred and been better at the humanities subjects, so I know that I will base my choices with these.

    However, I am considering taking history, geography and R.E but I'm worried that that might be too much to take on??

    I'm also interested in sociology and government and politics but I don't know if taking one of these as well would just completely drown me?

    any advice would be really great! If you've taken any of these at A level or have been in a similar situation please tell me what your opinion and choices were!

    I took history, geography and politics at AS Level.

    History is a good choice if you can handle essays, but there is a lot to learn. However, I found history very interesting and enjoyable.
    Geography was less essay-based but there was a lot of content to learn for that too. Still, it was an enjoyable subject.
    I also found politics enjoyable - another strongly essay-based subjects with a lot of content to learn.

    They're all very enjoyable, and history and geography are seen as "traditional" subjects, so are always beneficial!

    But with humanities there tends to be a huge amount of content to learn. If you're good at essays and don't mind learning lots of content these should be well suited to you. Hope this helped!

    Do you think I should take a 4th subject as well as the humanities, or would that be too much?

    I took four humanities-based subjects and found it okay. It's up to you, though - it depends on whether you think you can learn lots of content for four subjects.
