    So I have originally decided to take eng lit, french, maths and history and I want to take history at university (hopefully oxford?)
    However, my teacher is pushing me to take further maths. If I did take further maths I would have to change my choices in option blocks around (due to the fact that I have to take further maths and maths in specific blocks). This would also mean that I would have to change my other options due to the option blocks too.
    I would either be able to do: further maths, eng lit/lang, maths and history
    further maths, french, maths and history
    Or should I keep my options like they were at the start??
    (I am predicted a's and a*'s in everything)

    I think your current options look good as they are. Personally I would leave out Further Maths.

    You could do 5 (teach yourself further maths).

    Don't do something just because your teacher tells you to do it- it's your life and your future university course at the end of the day, not theirs.
