    I want to study Law in the future, and I'm aspiring for Cambridge. I'm predicted mostly A*s in GCSEs now, so I'm probably able to keep up with the workload. It's just that I've heard that Government and Politics isn't looked on as favourably by other top universities. I do, however, already have an extensive knowledge of the workings of Parliament and the Government so it really shouldn't be so difficult for me to get a high grade in it and I already know quite a large proportion of the subject matter as far as I can see. My current options are History, Mathematics, Economics and Philosophy.

    Why not try posting in a specific subject forum- you might have more luck there.

    Top unis do like government and politics, providing it is mixed well with other subjects. For example Sociology, English Lang and Politics isn't a good mix, but something like history, maths, politics and economics is.

    I do not recommend self studying it, simply because the amount of content is vast and it seems very easy to overlook parts of the spec.
