Should I take politics for a level? I want to study English at university, and my other a-levels are English literature, history and maths. I initially wanted to do 3 alevels to concentrate on getting the best grades possible but I feel that I would like more options as I am not sure about maths. Is it worth taking four for a term to see which subject I prefer or just sticking with my original three a levels? Also, is politics seen as a respectable a level- ie will I still be able to get into Oxbridge with it? If anyone else took politics I would love to know your thoughts on politics as an a level- did you enjoy it, what topics did you cover etc???

Yes 100% if you're unsure about an A-level you should start with 4 otherwise you might find yourself stuck with one you don't like.

Politics is no less "respectable" than say, history and to my knowledge is fairly similar in format. Didn't do politics though so can't comment on those specifics. There is in general no such thing as a "respectable" or "soft" A-level.
