Have you considered looking at the subject requirements for the courses you want to apply to rather than taking an umbrella approach?

I’m not in a position where I can advise anything mainly because it’s uncertain what the situation will be like when you actually start university. I imagine you’ll be applying for the 2023 entry?

I imagine COVID will be a non-issue by that point but I can’t be certain and thus if moving away from home will be an option and as such, where you will be living (accommodation or home) because I am unsure if online lectures will still be done or not.

So, unless you can submit the universities you’re looking at, right now the help anyone can give is limited as some universities have different entry standards and subjects than others.

Sorry for not being much help, I just need more than what you’ve given me so far.

though 'traditional' essay based subjects may give you an advantage for some unis, they'll care more about the grades you get so just make sure you're doing subjects you enjoy. drop the one you think you'd enjoy the least.
