I'm considering my A-Level choices atm as the last batch of college open evenings before I have to submit my application are fast approaching. I was thinking about doing:
-History (for definite)
-Religious Studies (almost definite but concerned by some people saying it's not a very respectable subject?)
-English Literature (I love reading so think it fits well)
-Either Maths / Economics / Business Studies
My long term goal is to study a joint honours BA History and Philosophy or BA History and English Literature before training to teach secondary History. Do my choices look okay to achieve this?
I'm predicted As/A*at GCSE and study English Literature, RE, History and Maths. I don't currently do business Studies / Economics - could that be a problem for me?
Thanks

Do maths, if you enjoy it and are capable. It is such a good A Level.
Maybe you should only consider doing 3 A Levels.

dont be put off by what others say about your RE choice. if you definitely know what you're doing for university then it's really important that you pick the subjects that will help you with that course...obviously RE is much better for philosophy than sciences right?

if you didnt know what you want to do then sure pick something more ''respectable'' as they'll open more doors but you know already what you want. History and english Literature are 2 facilitating subjects and thats already a good set of choices because they say pick atleast 2 fac. subjects and the rest can be softer. i would say pick maths or economics.
