    I am definitely doing maths, further maths and economics at a level.( probably step 1,2 and possibly ). I need a fourth subject to do as it advisable. What is an easy 4th subject that is not considered 'soft' in the eyes of LSE,UCL, Warwick , Imperial and Cambridge etc. I am thinking of politics AS , philosophy AS, phycology AS and maybe religious studies. Which of these subjects would be easiest. I ruled out chemistry because it is a very tough subject( I took advice from some friends) and there are very few A*'s at A2 and its a hard AS. What are you guys opinions? Thanks

    I'd go for Psychology. I took Politics and I did do very well, but it actually requires quite a lot of effort (at least, my exam board did) and people at my college didn't do so well in it. Hopefully some others can chime in, don't base your decisions just off my view.
