What should I drop for A2? Watch
Religious Studies - A (89% UMS)
History - B (72% UMS)
English B (76% UMS)
Media Studies - A (98.5% UMS)
Originally I was planning on dropping Media because it is not respected enough and whatever, and I do plan on getting an A in English and A in History (one resit), if I do decide to keep them. If I didn't I would drop History. However, I've read online that usually Unis want two traditionally suitable subjects, so do you think its a better idea to apply to top unis with AAB (A*A*A prediction) with media or with ABB (A*AA prediction) with 3 more traditional subjects. I do want to apply to top Unis but I feel like my situation is a bit weird as both options seem pretty balanced (keep high grade media or lower grade history)
I'm going to quote in Tank Girl now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed.
You might as well do the one you enjoyed the most at AS for A2 because you've got two 'respectable' subjects. I did biology and chemistry which I needed for the course I wanted to do at university and I kept sociology (which people consider as a 'soft' subject) and I got all of my offers including from russell group universities. Personally, I would keep media as you did brilliantly in it!
