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).
