    I definetely want to take History, Biology and Maths and I'm unsure of a fourth.
    At GCSE's I have A*s in the three subjects I want to take, also ICT and Chemistry, B's in English and RS and this year I am resitting both English and RS and also studying for GCSE's in Humanities, Music, Physics, Statistics and English Lit, all of which I am predicted A or A*. I enjoy the majority of subjects, however I don't enjoy English Lit or Lang as I find the content quite trivail and uninteresting. Could someone please suggest other subjects that would be good to take?

    Chem and Maths and Physics all open a ton of doors, for most subjects. I regret not doing Maths lol.
    Depends on what job you want? Bio will probs need Biology and such.

    I would say take chemistry or physics. Chemistry is needed for degrees such as medicine, whilst physics is more for engineering. That way you are keeping your options open for the majority of science degrees. If you decided that a BSC is not for you, then A Level history keeps your options open for if you want to do a BA. From personal experience I find history really interesting but wish I hadn't taken english lit!
