    I am considering picking between Ancient History and Early Modern (which is the Tudors, Louis XIV, the witch trials) but I heard some people say that Ancient History isn't a very respected subject and Early Modern would be best. If I wanted to go to uni for History or English would Early Modern or Ancient History be best?

    Not sure if Ancient History itself is respected but Classics certainly is so I don't quite understand why it wouldn't be. As long as you have a killer PS, good grades and reasoned explanations you should be ok, double check entry requirements for the uni to see if they prefer certain subjects.

    Louis XIV and the Stuart monarchs are probably the two most interesting areas of history I've ever studied so I would say Early Modern (bearing in mind I've never studied Ancient History!)

    Do the area you're most interested in. That will come across better in a PS or interview because to be honest, universities don't care what you study they care how good you are at it and how much you love it.
