    I’m at a bit of a dead at the moment when it come s to sixth form. I’m currently doing A level Film studies and BTEC performing arts. I hate Performing arts so next year I’m probably going to do 2 fast track A levels. Now I know that I want to do English Literature (and probably go on to do it at university) however I’m torn between doing Drama and Theatre studies or History at A level along with considering religous studies as well. I’m really stuck as I would love to do both History and Theatre studies I can only do one. So which one do you think I should do that’s best in the long term.

    The best way is to look at the entrance requirements of the English courses at the unis you wish to study at. Then you will know where you stand.

    If you hate performing arts, then how do you know you will like Drama and theatre studies?

    Film studies is weak academically.
    Drama and theatre is niche, but ok for English courses.
    History is strong.


    You should also consider which one you enjoy the most and will get the highest grade in. 2 A levels in a year is a lot of work, never mind having to finish off your film studies. History in particular has a larger amount of work. Do not underestimate it. I would suggest starting work over the summer.

    I will probably make up my mind by Easter. The thing I hate about performing arts is the dance aspect.

    History is a sound choice.
