    I am in Year 11 and don't know which of these two I would like to do, I definitely want to take Maths and History. Which other two A-Levels should I take to bolster my chances of getting into a top university?

    English Literature would be good for Law, and for Accountancy you might want to take something like Economics or Business Studies

    Maths, history and economics, keeps your options open and looks good for accountancy and Law, I'm doing that combination + politics and business, I can tell you business is rubbish DONT do it, I'm only doing it because I need 3 options in school

    Any other options besides English Lit? Economics looks like a good choice.

    Yeah I don't really like the look of Business Studies, Economics looks much more interesting

    Yeah both units of AS economics are interesting and worth the investment of time, although you do only learn about market performance and economic performance of a country but it gets you to grips with the economy, as a subject it wouldn't help you in accounting but with a good grade it will certainly make your uni application look better

    Well for Law you need traditional subjects and ones that allow you to be analytical so English Lit is basically the perfect choice. Another option would be English Language but it's often not as well respected
