    I have finally decided on my a level options
    I wish to take politics English literature maths and classical civilisation.
    I have no idea what I want to do in the future but will these choices keep my options open also how enjoyable are these a levels ?
    I also am considering doing an EPQ is it worth it?

    I do English Literature and politics. Really enjoyable, really worth while. Maths opens up your choices so much for uni and classics i have heard is very good. Nice choices!
    If you're doing 4 a levels, I wouldn't recommend the EPQ unless you have a clear focused idea of what you want to do.

    Thanks!
    My school suggests you take 4 and something extra during year 12 then you drop a subject.
    Which i know is a lot
    How do you find English literature is there many essays and lots of reading also I'm not sure whether to take politics as I feel as if it may be a risk.
    I don't know whether I'll find it boring or too difficult.

    Ive done quite a far few essays, about 6 so far? But the reading isn't too much as we read in class so there's not a lot of reading to be done at home. Politics is fun, I think. If you're interested in politics in general I think you will enjoy it- although it does depend on teaching styles and stuff. It's not hard though.
