Hey everyone!

This question is aimed at people in 6th form or Uni or higher because they will have more experience.

So, I am currently considering my A-Level Options, and so far they are:
English Literature
Politics
Economics
Classics: Latin
Spanish

I am hoping to get it down to 3/4 but ughh I am having a tough time!

At Univerisity,
I would like to study either of the four:
Classics and English
English and Modern Languages (Eng + Spanish)
International Relations and Politics
Politics, Philosophy and Economics

My main issue is that I do not know which exactly I want yet and I want to shorten my A-Levels to four so that I can tailor a university course better. Do my A-Levels directly impact what I can study???

please help!!!

Politics is not very important. Even if you want to study PPE, doing history and econ is much much more recommended. Also, you will have a harder time applying for PPE without Maths. Even if you do IR and politics, politics A level is not required. So cross it out.
Econ is a good one to have, no matter what degree you do. Unless you do Classics, choose one between EngLit and Classics (EngLit is better I think)
Spanish will greatly improve your employability even if you don't do Modern Language at uni
So I think the best choice is
Econ + EngLit + Spanish (+ Politics AS level)
or
Econ + EngLit + Politics if you really like politics. Though history will be much better.
Do Maths or AS Accounting if you want to steer more towards an Econ degree. (ie Econ Maths EngLit)
