    I wanna be a journalist so history and English are recommended but unis ask for ABB/AAB and I'm scared I'd only scrape a c at best with either of these subjects. Would I be best taking a subject such as law (which I'm still worried I'll struggle with), psychology or health and social???
    I'm know I'm taking religious studies and either btec in media, or a level sociology but mostly probably media as I think that would be best?

    It completely depends on the course and each uni's requirements. There is no need to take a harder subject if its not required, especially if you aren't capable of getting the needed grade in it.
