So now that year 12 is ending and applying for universities is approaching, I am still not 100% sure what I want to do. I had politics and/or economics (most likely a joint degree) in mind but, like I said, am not 100% on it or even sure what I should be doing towards it now to make my application "stronger".

Does anyone have any other ideas, in terms of degree choices? Also, what can I do to make my applications, if I decided on politics and economics stronger, in terms of work experience, extra reading, etc.

Thanksss

Look at the obvious subjects - History, Politics etc - but also at subjects you havn't studied at school.
A few suggestions that use elements of your A level subjects:
Social Policy / Social Work / Criminology : https://www.york.ac.uk/spsw/undergraduate/
International Development / Economics : https://www.uea.ac.uk/international-...aduate-degrees
International Relations / Politics : http://www.york.ac.uk/politics/under...course-content
Anthropology /Archaeology : http://www.bris.ac.uk/study/undergra.../ba-arch-anth/

You can go the finance way

You can do the KPMG school leavers programme which is really good apparently

You can study psychology which opens a lot of job prospectus

You can stay politics and economics, but I'm not really sure what jobs you can do apart from being a teacher.

I think politics philosophy and economics would suit those a levels very well.

Then you don't know much about graduate employment - any sort of Social Science or Humanities degree opens up thousands of opportunities in almost every job area you could think of, in particular areas like Banking, Government Depts, Journalism, Overseas NGOs.
