So I have just applied to these subjects in sixth form:
-Business Btec (takes up 2 A-Levels)
-History A-Level
is it okay if I only do these 2, or does it limit me?
would I be able to do law/international law or economics at university with these?
if not can someone suggest some subjects that would allow me to do that or just generally open doors for me

my other options could be
-History
-Economics
-Sociology
is this combination better?
Thank you

Law yes as there are no subject requirements, although some of the elite unis might have an issue.
Economics yes, although some of the more competitive unis require maths A level.


You need to look at subjects , look at what interests you and you can get the best grades with least effort.

Try these.
Which A levels?

Thank you for linking these websites they're really helpful.

So do you think taking my second possible combination is better? (History, Economics and Sociology and maybe Arabic as an extra one)

Yes but its all about your best three grades.
The 4thb A level has limited value unless one of the 3 goes wrong, its maths, you can cope easily with the 3.

Hi!

I would recommend that History, economics and sociology would be a great combination. You are covering a variety of bases here, I took history sociology and English and therefore there were a lot of essays, but economics (whilst a difficult subject) may be a nice change from the heavy essay-based other subjects. This combination can lead to a number of different job opportunities and degree choices so I would suggest this instead of business, unless you are really set on business of course!

Thank you so much for your advice I actually really appreciate it. I just emailed my school asking to change my subjects to History, Sociology and Economics. I only chose business because I didn't know what else to do but now I think it's better for me to do the other subjects instead.
