    English Language, Economics, Business Studies and Sociolgy
    Which is hardest (most work) and should i swap one of them out for a more fun or easier option like Media Studies/Graphic Design/Drama?

    I wouldn't take economics and business studies together, they clash too much in specification to a point where some sixth forms won't let you do them together and universities may not like it. I would do Economics over business because it's much more interesting. You don't have a facilitating subject (which is fine if you're not considering a Russell Group university) but you may want to consider doing English Lit instead of language. As long as you enjoy your subjects that's the most important thing, but you also need to bear in mind university etc. I would stick to 3 instead of 4, because you will have more free time and could do an EPQ.

    Business and sociology are both quite soft, so don't swap for something harder. Economics and business are very similar but economics is more respected. Maybe do economics, sociology and english language just, or if you wanted two hard options swap english language for literature.
    Saying that, I do geography, politics and RS and because i want todo internatonal relations I feel very wellset up and althogh RS and politics aren't facilitating theyr well regarded. So basically, keep economics because thats 'hard' and don't do sociology media and drama! hope this helps
