    I'd do English, History, Philosophy and Maths.

    Philosophy: If you don't like to know the answer to anything
    Maths: if you like to know the answer to everything

    It's actually a good mix. :P

    About 75% of my philosophy class takes maths, as well!

    Personally I'd take philosophy and psychology, but that's just because they're two I'm seriously considering (as well as English and History). Overall, I'd say take what you'll enjoy, no point in slogging through a subject for two years that you hate!

    Can i make a note here that thread members should be giving advice on the most appropriate subjects that would fit the best chances of a good 'well rounded' application to university or higher education. The OP has chosen her favourite subjects already so it does not matter talking about which subject you like. Therefore you conclude the best subjects to fit the criteria if the OP like them all!
    Personal choices are not thiers and should therefore be kept to our own. It's not good saying you like a subject because has little effect.

    Yes, but what I was thinking is surely out of the few they listed, there must be ones that THEY prefer. That was all, and I listed my personal choice as this is a discussion? Not a Q&A section.

    yes you are right!
    This is a discussion not a Q&A section

    but the OP is asking
    Which 2/3 Would Be Best To Do Out Of These
    This does not require what you would 'personally' go for; although there is nothing to stop you from saying what you are doing.
    This is not an attack on you my dear, it's a note and suggestion to what the thread members should be doing to guide the OP properly into the right decision; but what do we define as correct? - by weighing out the subjects, scrutinising them and eventually coming to a conclusion about what subjects the OP could take.

    Sia has demonstrated what i am talking about - A good response. Saying what subjects she takes, weighing up the two adversarial/consensual subjects (in this case maths and philosophy) and evaluating them from personal experience. This is what we should aim for.
    Once again, don't take it personally - it's a note to everyone to stay on track

    God, yeah. I'm sorry, I see what you're saying. I was full of cold and snapping at everyone! I am still full of cold, but in a better mood. Sorry about that!

    Going with those ideas, I would say take maths if your able enough to continue on to A level, it's most likely to always be handy. Then also philosophy as it has the wordiness (is that a word?) of English and History, but works well with Maths too.

    However, I stick with my original point, pick the ones you're going to enjoy the most, whether that's enjoying the challenge posed or the matter studied. There is no point in doing something you don't particularly like in anyway, but makes a 'traditional' or 'obvious' choice.

    But to be fair my Mum taught primary school years and she didn't even have maths GCSE until she was 39.
    She did English, History and Biology at A level though, but she didn't do very well.

    I still say take what you enjoy the most though, no point slogging away at something you're not going to enjoy.

    Id say the best courses to have would be Chemistry, Maths and Biology (in that order). If you have those, it looks very very impressive, no matter what course you apply for

    My mum still doesn't lol. She's a PA. But they check now with these new people. I was looking at various havering schools and they want the classic 5-A*-C and C in English and Maths.

    Corr it must've been hard learning maths GCSE when you're an adult. Kudos to her
