    I've already decided on english lit, german and geography but I'm not completely convinced about politics a level. Is it hard?
    My main concern is that it'll be boring and I'll find it not all that. I take history gcse, I think mainly it's due to my teacher lol shes so boring, but I find it so dead.
    I'm mainly on the fence between politics and economics tho.

    Most people who take it already have an interest in how the country is run or has been run. If you cant adapt to History at GCSE, then dont do A level as it gets much more in depth. Economics has got maths in it and theres a lot more theory behind it.

    it's not that I'm bad at history; i'm on track for an 8 (A*), and i do find it interesting, I'm just not a fan of how I'm taught it, or how it's examined. That being said, I wouldn't take history a level but instead, I would take politics, as i do have a genuine interest in that

    Do what you are interested in.

    History is only relevant for

    History degrees.
    Degrees that require 2 facilitating.
    Where you can get a high grade.

    The OP keeps saying that they're not doing history, they're considering g+p.

    I'm missing the point where I said anything to the contrary?
