    So I was pretty much set on taking English Lit, French and History, as these are the subjects I think I am best at, and I wanted to study Law at university. However, I've been rather put off the idea of taking law at uni, and am strongly considering a degree in business or business management instead. For this, I gather it is recommended to have taken maths at a level - or at least, to get into a Russell Group uni, which is what I hope to do?

    So now I am very stuck and confused about the following things:

    1) Should I take maths at all? I am fairly good at maths, and am almost definitely going to get an A at GCSE (maybe an A* at a push but I don't think I put in enough effort for the whole year as I wasn't previously intended on pursuing maths any further)
    2) Should I replace history or french? I think I would most probably prefer to take french over history, but I know history and english go well together and I have always enjoyed learning about it. I think I will get A*s in both subjects at GCSE - hopefully!

    Any advice would be very appreciated please!! Thank you very much

    EDIT: I could potentially consider taking all 4, but I think that it'd be a slightly too heavy work load? I've always been quite an able student but I know the step up from GCSE to A level is rather a lot and I don't want to take on too much and get lower grades as a result! My school no longer allow us to take 4 subjects at AS and then drop one for the final year, which is why I'm struggling so much to decide!

    You don't have to take maths if you don't want to because not all Business courses at universities require maths A level. But i thinks maths A level will help you in the future if you will go on to bussiness. Also, you can take maths if you want because Law degree don't requires a specific subjects (so you still can go into Law). For me i think you should do the subjects that you good at and enjoy most.
