    I am currently planning to study Spanish, Maths, Geography and Philosophy and Ethics, starting in September.
    I have not decided upon a particular career path and want to keep my options open!
    Recently I have been considering taking English Literature, but in order to do that I would have to drop either geography or maths.
    What would you recommend!?

    Nice mix of subjects- atm
    If you are not a maths person then take up english lit. Maths is tough but it really does leave a lot of options open as does geography. In the end it is up to you

    I've doing A2 and am doing English Lit and Geography (and health and social as I want to do occupational therapy.) Geography is a good subject because it does leave options open as it mixes science, maths and English and its respected by all unis. Maths is really difficult, I mean REALLY difficult. I know people who are hardworking and got a* in maths at gcse but say its impossible to get an A, B being hard to achieve in maths. English Lit imo is much better. But please don't base your opinions on us, base it on what YOU want

    I do geography A Level and I would really recommend it. Not only is it interesting, but it involves a lot of different valuable skills!
    I would say you already have a good choice, but if you really want to do English then I would swap it with maths instead of geography.
    However, I think that without English you already have a good mix of subjects that will leave your options open and get you far! best of luck
