I am choosing to either drop English literature or history. My subjects are economics,maths, English literature and history. I am enjoying English literature but i think that history goes better. Can anyone give me some advice?

I think you should stick with English Lit which you are enjoying. It provides the essay writing contingent of your skill set just as well as history. What is it about history that is bothering you.

economics or economic history
Some economic history courses may require or prefer A-level History (such as History & Economics at Oxford). It's obviously also more relevant to that subject area than English literature. If you aren't enjoying history enough now to have it be the preferred subject to continue out of those two, is there a reason you're considering economic history at university?

That aside, for economics at least, consider which subject you think you'll do better in, to give you the highest possible predicted grades and best chance of achieving those. If you are concerned you won't be able to do well in history, then it may be best to drop it (and consequently you may want to re-evaluate whether economic history is a sensible degree choice). Either is fine for single subject economics or PPE (although Oxford indicates history is "helpful" for PPE) though. Bear in mind some economics courses prefer or require AS or A-level Further Maths (such as LSE), which may constrain your choices more than whether you take English or history.

For now, drop the subject that makes you feel uncomfortable. You surely do not want to learn a subject even at Uni level if it doesn't feel right.
