I am off to college in September to study AS levels and am looking forward to it, however I am struggling to make my mind up on courses.

I am going to take pe and human biology but am going to drop one subject, either commmunication and culture, history or business studies. I really would like to give up history due to my loss of interest in it but know that I am good at it (potentially a*). Is it true that universities like History?? Could I possibly have any input from people who could help me make my mind up?

Thanks.

Are you wanting to go down a sports/physiotheraphy career route ? You might want to do another science based subject such as psychology or chemistry. But, like other people have said, don't do History because "it looks good", do it because you want to, and if you don't want to then you shouldn't be doing it. The course is difficult and if you haven't got the enthousiasm there then it's difficult to put in the effort to get the top grades= a recipe for disaster. Alternatively, which AS level interests you the most? Because a fourth AS level should be enjoyed if you're only going take it until the end of year 12. I suggest you look up the relevant exam boards and view the syllabuses for the subjects, which will give you more of an idea of their content for next year.

I have no clue what i want to do at uni or where to go. My subjects do not seem very academic without history though.

Make sure you have the required/desired A-levels for your likely future degree (check the uni websites if you are unsure). For the remaining 1-2 subjects pick ones which you will enjoy, and will do well in.
