I've got 2 subjects I want, one extra I'll be studying at home. Looking for an A-Level with little to no revision. Any suggestions?

More coursework based courses are probably best, you will be doing more work throughout the year and then a less strenuous exam season. Business, media, sports studies, English, drama, music, art, history. Some will still have exams, but you get more coursework based assessment so less exams at the end.

History was my worst a-level by far around exam time, a huge amount of content to revise. Basically had to learn two textbooks, definitely not a no revision a-level! Agree with english though, and would add languages

I took English at A-level and found that there was a large amount of revision at exam time. I think if you take any course which has an exam there is revision and that is unavoidable. Why can you not take a 3rd A level at college?

You probably did English Literature. Our college doesn't allow us to take less than 3 A-Levels.
