    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!

    Four AS Levels is the standard amount so why wouldn't you be able to cope?

    Pick a science/maths probably 2 otherwise I think you'll run yourself into the ground with essays doing history, geography and politics. Geography and politics would go well together there is a decent overlap, maths is good to keep your options open and then you could do biology/sociology I think that would be a pretty good mix.

    No, the OP said they have "always preferred and been better at humanities subjects" so telling them to take sciences, when that clearly isn't the route they want to take, is not helpful.



    OP, you can always start with 4 subjects and then drop one if you're unable to cope.
