I just finished my GCSEs and I picked History, Sociology and a Modern Language for A-levels.
Considering I want to follow a career in International Relations, did I make the right choices?

they're definitely the right subjects to choose. but if you want to aim for the top IR courses (St Andrews and LSE) you might want to choose a more traditional subject than sociology, such as Geography but which of course will be harder

Yup! They seem fine! Just as long as you can link it to the course. For example, I take geog, psychology and politics but I’m applying to study business at uni. In my personal statement, I wrote how my current subjects link with business. E.g: psychology - links with consumer behaviour/marketing side of business + you do quantitative methods/stats, politics - political decisions affect businesses and the economy, and the globalisation bit of human geog links nicely with business. Hope this makes sense?!

History - you look at past conflicts and how they shape out world.
Sociology - how people behave closely links with IR.
Modern Lang - key communications skill needed in a IR job.
