    From what I know media studies, film studies and photography are all coursework based (depending on the exact course specifications). English language is about 50/50 coursework/exam I believe. Those four are your best options from the full list you've given - although I'm not sure how similar film and media studies would be to each other. It might be worth just doing 3 AS and continuing those 3 onto A2, but that's up to you and depends on how similar the courses sound!
