If you are currently in Year 10 or 11 and are hoping to go to a top University once you have finished school, you need to start thinking now about the A-Level subjects you might want to study as your choices now will make all the difference later. However, it is vital that you choose your A-Level subjects very carefully.
The Russell group represent 24 of the leading universities in the UK and recommend that you choose subjects from a list of eight in order to stand the best chance of getting a place at one of the top UK universities. Geography and History are both in this exclusive list of facilitating academic subjects which they recommend that you study at A-Level.
