Hello, I am currently in year 11 and doing my GCSEs and considering what a levels I should take.
I'm currently studying:
Firstly, would it be best for me to go to y local college to study my a levels or my schools sixth form? I'm thinking sixth form.
I know I want to go down a path of writing such as journalism which is why I'm thinking about history, sociology, religious studies and law. However I think four would be too many for me and would be best with three but is that not good enough to get in to uni? I will also be studying the Welsh baccalaureate. Any help would be apprecaited

if you want to go into journalism then English lit might be good to do. media studies A-level might be a good option if you can do that option at that level since it covers a lot of aspects of the media, sometimes including journalism (depends on the course, exam board etc). I did Religious Studies AQA and loved it, am still doing my final year and it would be good for developing your essay writing skills if you didn't want to take an English subject. if you are doing 3 essay based subjects then I wouldn't recommend doing a 4th option unless you take something lacking in writing (I did photography, since I already had Biology and RS)

I definitely would say take History, it's got a lot of essay based work like sociology. Although History is obviously harder, they compliment each other really well!
If u wanna go in journalism, english literature is very useful and u should take it
I think u should take History, Religious studies or Sociology, doesn't matter which one, both essay based subjects, do the one you'll enjoy the most and also take English literature.
I don't think u should take more than 3 because if u have too many essay based subjects, you're gonna have so much coursework you"ll struggle to finish them all.
As for the uni thing, you're more than fine with 3, uni's only require u to have 3 so u have nothing to worry about
