    I've applied to study A-level English language, English Literature, and History. I want to study a fourth A-level and am choosing between Philosophy, Government and Politics, and Sociology. I think I'd maybe like to study English (or possibly history) at uni, and was wondering about which subject (or alternatives) would be good to do. (also, how much do you need to know about the subjects before studying them, because I haven't studied them before and was wondering how much research to do before September) Thank you

    Depends what you want to do after A Levels, really. At one of the colleges I might be going to, they offer a course that is a mixture of English language and English literature, so perhaps if you took something like that you'd have another option space which would make deciding easier?

    Oops just realised you said what you wanted to do at uni. But, ask your teachers. If they offer no good advice, take a facilitating subject

    History and politics tie in together very well or history and sociology!!!!

    Philosophy - warning - please read the spec and the textbooks- it is not an easy ride
