Hi,

I am taking English lit, history, classical civilizations and photography for a level (I'm in yr12) I really wanna drop English as 3 essay subjects are a lot and I really love photography, BUT I don't know what to do as I really wanna go to oxford but I don't know if photography, classical civilizations, and photography are good enough to study the "history (ancient and modern)" course I want to do. is dropping English bad? I know I will do better in photography, but will oxford see it as an edge or just not value it?
please help I'm so torn!
thanks

Hi, you should probably post this in the Oxford forum to get more responses. I am sure @Oxford Mum will have a view on this. Best thing you could do is email a couple of Oxford Colleges and ask their view on this.

From a personal perspective I would think that your application would be stronger with English Lit in it than Photography.

I did photography A level and all of the universities I applied to have recognised it. Your best bet would be to email/call admissions and get an opinion on it before you make a decision. Hope this helps
