    Im doing biology and I would find it a bit weird doing English at the same time.

    imo the two subjects dont really go, but thats just me.

    It would be a very academic degree and would look great if you were looking towards teaching or something similar as a career.

    It is a bit of a strange combination, but if both of the subjects interest you then there's no reason why you shouldn't do a degree in them both. However, it could perhaps be worth picking one or the other, because then a larger selection of universities is then open to you. Don't worry too much about "keeping your options open" though, because a degree in English or Biology will be a good, solid degree if you manage to get, say, a 2:1 in it. Perhaps ironically, doing a joint degree may close some doors, because some specialist careers demand a deeper or broader knowledge of a subject than a joint honours can give you.

    If you enjoy both subjects, do them. It will give you variety so you won't get bored with one subject and will also keep your options open career-wise.

    Thanks for the replies. Yeah, that's true, there aren't that much unis I found doing that particular joint course compared to the number ones I found doing them seperate. Maybe I will choose just one, I'll see how I'll feel in time.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
