    Hi, I have two days to decide what to choose for my A level subjects. I know that I am definitely taking A level French, A level English literature and A level English Language. I am thinking about doing a degree in French and English literature as I would like to teach one of those subjects. I am undecided whether to take A level history or A level philosophy & ethics. I am not bothered about which one is the most respected one out of the two, I would just like to know which is the most enjoyable and interesting and which compliments my other subjects the best? I know it's all about personal opinion but I'd just like a rough idea on what you do in each and which is the most interesting.
    Many thanks!

    It might be worth reading some revision guides for the A level, just to gain an appreciation of the topics that could be taught and the type of material which you would need to learn. Both are difficult subjects in their own way. My experience of friends taking philosophy and ethics has been quite negative, but that was possibly down to teaching rather than the topic itself. I really loved history, on the other hand. However, it is best to look closely at the course content if you are uncertain. As a 4th a level, however, it's not the be all and end all, just pick which one you lean towards having weighed up the options. Good luck!
