    Hello,

    I have just applied for alevels and I don't know what option choices would be better.I am better at essay based subjects than maths/science subjects.I got A*'s in English,rs and history at GCSE and B's in everything else.
    I am thinking about these 2 subject combinations:
    1) history,English literature,ethics and philosophy and (psychology/English language/business studies)
    2) theatre studies,english literature,business studies and psychology

    In the future I want to do either business at university or English literature with something else. Also I really enjoy drama but I am not the best at it so I am worried I would do better in another subject- is theatre studies really hard?

    Many thanks!

    Does your sixth form not offer business at a level?

    English Literature is good for essays, I have just done AS Lit in Y12 and came out with a C with 8 marks to a B. Coursework is easy and exam once you get your head round it. Just depends if you prepared for lots of reading, because if AQA exam board you have to read 9-12 books over a year so your heavily prepared for the exam. There are 2 books for coursework with a question i.e. mine was motherhood in prose and drama and then you have to read 3 more to link with it. The rest you have to source yourself and use them as quotes in your exam which is extract and poetry.
