    I'm getting my GCSE results on Thursday and I have to finalise what A level subjects I want to take. Obviously I'll have to wait to receive my results, but my ambition is to study PPE (at Oxford if possible!!). I'm definitely taking maths, software systems development (computing) and RE. For a fourth subject, I don't know whether to take english lit or politics - English as it is facilitating or politics as it is course-specific. I live in Northern Ireland so AS levels still exist and I would probably drop computing after AS. I want to do it for at least a year though as I really enjoy it and if I decided I didn't want to go for PPE I'd be very happy to study computing! Should I pick politics or English lit?

    I'd choose English Lit, its a more facilitating course choice and top universities prefer them over specialised courses like Politics - even if you are taking a PPE degree.
