does it matter about soft subjects and hard subjectsWatch
I guess you don't yet know what you want to do yet, and I totally get that because I'm in the same boat. So, what I did was take two essay subjects, and one science subject: English lit, maths and philosophy. I'm glad I went with the options I did as I'm currently stuck between taking English, Computer Science, and Politics as a degree and my combination facilitates all of these.
So yeah. Worry less about 'soft' and 'hard' and more about if your subjects relate to the degree you want to study/whatever you want to do after A-Levels. If you're not sure, go for at least two facilitating subjects (there is a list of these online).
Hope you figure things out
because universities are academic institutions and therefore they want academic candidates with interests and abilities in academic subjects.and the traditional subjects prepare you far better than any other simply because they are basically entirely academic. you don't learn about library management when your doing a level history. or what chemicals and flasks to use when your trying to make dishwasher or methamphetamine in chemistry.you can have a PhD in economics and not know how risk management firms or sectors operate on a basic level .
do you want to go to a top university?
what do you want to get out of it?
what do you want to do after?
why wouldn't you want to go?
