    so I am currently in the process of applying for college, and I think I am going for
    -English Lit
    -later modern history
    However, I also really want to do philosophy but don't have room for it in my options. Can someone please tell me their experiences with these subjects, and whether my three are practical to do together? Thanks x

    I do English Lit, History and Philosophy.
    English Lit is good, it's not as hard as everyone makes it out to be imo. Out of all my subjects it is probably the easiest just because it's so enjoyable.
    History is good too, heavy content based though. History and English Lit is such a good conbination which is valued highly by universities.
    A language combined with this is good - opens up so many options for university and jobs in the future.
    It's a shame you can't do Philosophy, it's really fun and challenging - you'll never learn anything like it. But doing it as a 4th choice I wouldn't recommend. I do it for my 4th choice and sometimes it can get a bit heavy.
