    After months of being indecisive I've decided I want to do Politics and International Studies for my undergrad degree, in a few years.
    If you're wondering why I know what course I (roughly) want to do at uni before my a levels its because I want to make sure I have the right courses to get into uni.

    What A Levels would you advise taking?

    English Lit
    Economics
    History
    Politics

    or

    English Lit
    Biology
    History
    Chemistry

    Even though science isn't related, would it be good to have a mix of arts and sciences? I don't want to limit myself too much, I would do Maths but I don't think i'd enjoy it at a level.

    Any other combinations? or suggestions?
    Thank you!

    I would guess the first option as those subjects are probably more relevant, but the second is definitely the best (I may be a little biased as I take Biology, Chemistry and Eng Lit myself though :giggle:).

    Which subjects would you prefer?

    I don't really have a preference to any subjects! I would happily go with either option. I do take comfort in the fact that if I take the 2nd option, however I have many more options.

    What's your favourite out of the subjects you take?

    Chemistry
    (Maths is my 4th option, incase you were wondering).

    Having contrasting subjects is good, I think :yep:

    I do Eng lit, chem, history and politics

    so it's a mix of both

    But I like the second option best, at least with biology you have the option of going onto a science based path (a subject I regret not doing).
