    I have to choose my A-levels soon and I am stuck on which options to choose. The five which I am finding it difficult to choose between are:
    Maths
    Chemistry
    RS
    Government & Politics
    History

    I am only allowed to choose three.

    I would like to go to a Russell Group University, possibly Oxbridge, and I am also interested in possibly doing a PPE degree. I know that maths is required for this. Which of my subject choices are more highly regarded by these universities? I know that history is very highly regarded, but I think that I am more interested in taking politics or religious studies. Are these subjects less highly regarded?

    But that's only if you enjoy those subjects, research into the specification and see what you will be learning over the next 2 years. I am currently doing maths, chemistry and biology and tbh I enjoy maths out of the 3 because it's the only subject where you don't have to remember facts or information rather than the rules, methods and formulae. Maths also gets more interesting after a couple of chapters because the first 3 chapters are A* GCSE topics but in more detail.

    Would you say that Government & Politics is highly regarded by top universities?

    It isn't considered a facilitating subject.
