Taking three is already hard enough. Just don't do five, like the other user said, Universities won't really care.

we don´t have combined plus I like them both. I´m not sure what I wanna do in future so taking five subjects seems like a wider opportunity

Don’t be surprised when you do 5 subjects and you get 5 bs instead of 3/4 with A’s , the workload for 3 is already a lot then 4 is even more but doable but 5 - just have a rough career idea like a basic one do you want to work in engineering later if there’s a possibility take physics and maths as you won’t be able to get in without them. For some degrees if you plan on going you need specific A levels so have a look at some possible Career paths . And don’t take 5 the unis won’t look at you differently and wider opportunity then facilitating subjects help

taking three is difficult enough as it is - taking 5 can mean you dont meet your university offers, less free time and your mental health is more likely to deteriorate. i do 4 and i strongly advise against taking more than 3 a levels unless you got more than 8 8/9s at gcse.

I think you’re underestimating the difficulty of A levels so if I were you I would do History Psychology and one of the English’s, probably lit

Take media as a fourth if you see yourself in a media related career and you can always drop a subject if you can’t cope with the workload

None of the courses that you list usually have any specific subject requirements at A-Level. An essay-based subject would be useful for Law or Film Studies.

I would not recommend taking 5 A-Levels under any circumstances. 4 is a push and usually only of benefit if you are looking at Oxbridge type places or are taking Maths+Further Maths.

Getting the best possible grades in 3 subjects will give you a much wider set of options that mediocre results in 4 or 5.

Your school most likely won’t even allow you to do 5 because of timetabling anyway -> as others have said, I think you underestimate the amount of work that alevels are, I’m struggling to manage my time with 3, let alone 5!

I understand about you wanting to keep your options open though - are there courses you could do (acting/film directing) that don’t require e.g. alevel media?

These are the facilitating subjects : biology
chemistry
English
geography
history
maths
modern and classical languages
physics

If you don’t know what to do maybe pick 2 of these and media , but again if you have a feeling you want to do into science or engineering etc then pick 2 that would allow you to do so. I think go look at a uni prospectus and have note down the subjects you’d be remotely interested it and have a look if the a levels you would pick would allow you to do the degree

Thanks will do so, I‘m not really into maths and sciences, apart from biology.But I will look at uni prospectus.
