    I’m currently deciding on what A levels i should pick. My original choices were English Lit, Sociology and Media Studies but since i’ve applied to other colleges, some in which don’t have media, I was thinking to replace the subject with either Government & Politics or History.

    What are these A Levels like? And is my original combination appropriate if I want to get into a russell group uni and study English, or a course that is media-related?

    English Lit, History and Sociology would be an absolutely perfect match. You’ve got your two fascilitating subjects to keep your options open, and they all help with eachother. This would be an amazing combo in my opinion.

    But what if i’m not that keen on History and would rather enjoy politics or media studies? Would that still affect my chances?

    Unless you want to pursue a career in media I wouldn’t take it at a level at it is looked down on as an a Level by universisties. Politics would be better to take, but just remember you need to enjoy it.
