    Im at the point where I need to decide what to do and im pretty much certain on:

    English Literature
    Physics
    History

    I have a real intrest in politics and all the open-day information seems prommising but since im already thinking about English and History I wondered if a techincal subject like Electronics would go well with Physics?

    Anyone whos doing or has done electronics could comment on it?

    Thanks.

    electronics has a lot to do with physics, that's all I know because they have a lot in common.

    but if you're thinking of a scientific career at all you need maths...

    you're obviously not going to be a scientist when you're older so if you're really interested in politics then do it, you only need 1 science subject to keep "breadth" as our teachers keep saying when we think about A level choices

    I've done AS electronics and am currently doing the A2. It s true that it is a very difficult subject (I find it more difficult than maths) and that it does require a great deal of hard work but if you have an interest in the subject then it is really interesting at the same time. I would say that if you would like a very respected subject behind you then electronics would definitely be a strong option. The coursework is great if you like to work independently and the lab work is great at helping understand the theory which can be a little heavy and complex at times.

    Im thinking about journalism when older in which case I guess poltics would be most useful, I also love working with computers and would be intrested in doing something related at a higher level though I dont perticularly enjoy maths.

    Thanks for the responses, very useful
