I’m starting college soon, and I now have to decide which A-levels to take. I’m set on English Lit and History but I have one more to choose

I really like Film studies, but I’m worried it won’t be taken seriously by Oxbridge. Would geography be the better 3rd choice?

If you're set on Oxbridge then I think you should take geography tbh

There's a thread on the Cambridge forum in which you can ask an admissions tutor just this sort of question.

(He will say Film Studies is fine as your third subject, but you might as well ask.)

Happy with the AT's response, or still conflicted?

I think it’s really helped, film is probably the right choice I think
