    History and geography are regarded as one of the top alevels by the Russell group alongside maths English sciences and the languages. Also, politics is by no means a weak subject. all subjects are good for law or other related humanities degree at good unis

    I've been looking in to accountancy, too. Unfortunately none of your subjects are listed as facilitating or semi-facilitating for the russel group.
    Do you have maths to AS level? I've heard this is useful, or at a minimum, a good grade in GCSE maths (and English).
    If you didn't choose maths, I'm wondering why you're interested in accounting and finance - it has quite a lot of maths, so I wouldn't recommend it if you don't enjoy maths!

    If you're set on being an accountant there are some great courses from KPMG - they pay for your uni in some cases, and even give you up to £20,000 a year as an apprentice!!
    https://www.kpmgcareers.co.uk/school...e#.VwkbgpwrLDc
    You need 260 UCAS points for the 3-year course, or to become a chartered accountant it takes 5 years and
    "Grades ABB at A Level, plus a B in GCSE Maths and a B in GCSE English Language (or equivalent)"
    ...and you'll be paid all the way through and end up with a degree and a job. I don't really understand why anyone doesn't choose apprenticeships tbh

    Sounds pretty much the best you could choose without history. Economics can be a good choice also I've heard, but the main thing is you have analytical subjects!
