    Hi all, not familiar enough with the forum to know if this is the right area to post, so feel free to redirect me.
    I am having a panic moment, I am doing A-level History, Classical civilisation, and Ancient history, I also have an AS in English lit.
    I have been told by several people, including my latin tutor who studied at Oxford, that it isn't a problem to have such similar subjects, as I am very confident in what i want to do my degree in, so my studies are tailored towards that end. Recently, I have seen several articles/posts that say specifically do not do History and ancient history and so on, as they count as the same subject, or in the same respect "classical civ" and "Ancient history, as they are both technically classics.
    Should I worry, or is this just generalisation on the part of said articles?
    Btw, I am intending to either do History or maybe History and ancient history joint honours.

    Unless it says so on a specific university's entry requirements you will be fine. It certainly demonstrates a passion for your subject...

    There's not very much you can do about it this stage, but maybe contact a few potential choices for their opinion.

    Hi,Yep I was thinking that it IS a little too late to be thinking this again hehe, but it just made me overly aware that I had purposefully shifted from studying to English lit to Ancient History because I switched colleges, and suddenly had Ancient history as an option. I think it would be a good idea to in some way check through admissions for my specific choices. All in all it's good to just hear others opinions, the paranoid need for reassurance that comes from looming UCAS application time XD
