    They're a bit random but it depends on what you're looking to do after.

    I don't think R.E is seen as a pointless subject but I'm not very sure about the others

    They are fone, but do some research to find out what the degree course you think you want to do will require. Grades matter the most.

    I did both RS (the philosophy & ethics units) and media. I received all my uni offers, including 3 from Russell Group Unis. I got into my firm who even gave me an offer from the lower end of the offers range (AAB instead of AAA.) Hope this reassures you that those 2 choices are perfectly fine, I don't know much about the others though

    So true! People just need to do the subjects they enjoy!
