Can you guys suggest some A-level subjects that would be useful for if I wanted to do a degree in history. Just list them if you want as I’d like some ideas for my third A-level (doing maths and history).

What options do u have to choose from? Politics or economics r more rarer a levels. U also have socially and philosophy, these r not very commonly found to be taught I imagine. U can also try a language, that would be good

History + anything, most people I know did history English and politics, but I also know ones who did economics, biology, geography, classciv, and maths. Something like classciv or ancient history might be good
