    Maybe swap Sociology for Spanish? Languages are really good A Levels to take. You also won't be set as many essays and will have a wider array of subject choices
    Thank you, if I was to swap one it probably would be sociology anyway

    From what I've heard politics is enjoyable but sociology is quite boring but quite easy however there is a lot of work. I did not even know you could do gov at A level.
    My sixth form doesn't offer only politics so that's why I'm taking the both

    Well I fell like the subjects I have taken do offer different pathways, I have researched and it would be possible for when I go to uni after to do any degree I wanted because the uni I want go doesn't require the subjects at A level it just requires three grades in any subjects
    That's great then, I'd say go for it. You can always drop one if it gets too hard anyway!

    I took History, English Language, Classics and Sociology, and they're all essay based. The work load is hard, but the techniques and occasionally the content overlap, making it easier. At lot of my exam essays have a similar structure I can apply.
    I had never taken sociology before, and I took it thinking I'd drop it at the end of year 1, but it turned into my favourite subject and I love it.

    I am thinking about taking these subjects:

    - A level combined English
    - A level History.
    - A level government and politics.
    - A level sociology.

    I was considering taking A level Spanish but not sure?

    Thanks to anyone who replies!!
    It really depends on what you want to do and what you're interested in, also consider if/what course you'd want to study at university.

    Maybe a STEM subject would be useful to create a balance between essay writing based skills and mathematical/statistical skills, but ultimately it depends on what you're happy to study and if it'll help you later on.
    But yes, these are good A-levels

    I do 4 essay based subjects. The workload is fine if you're dedicated. You can do it, it isn't that intense if they're subjects you enjoy. As for stem, if you have no interest in maths or science don't take it. There's no point taking something just because it looks good if it has no relevance. If you're looking to boost your subjects, you could consider taking English Literature instead of combined or Spanish instead of sociology. But your subjects are perfect if you're considering law really, do what you enjoy!!!
    Thank you so much!!😊😊
