17 Good A-Level Combinations That Universities Love

In A-Level by Think Student Editor253 Comments

You may have just finished school, and you’re already looking forward to your time in college. You’ll want to choose the best A-Levels for your chances of success, and an easier application to university. 

Or maybe you’re already near the end of your time of college, and you’re just wondering if the A-Levels you have done will get you into university. 

Either way, you’ve come to the right place. Read on for a list of the best A-Level combinations you can have, if you’re considering entering university after college.

1. Computer Science, Physics, Maths

The first A-Level combination on this list is Computer Science, Physics, and Maths. A great set of A-Levels for anything you want to do, but most importantly, university applications. 

Computer Science is highly valued among universities, as technology is fast developing in this day and age. They need students that can adapt to this, and handle possibly more difficult tasks that other students may not be able to do. 

Pairing Computer Science with Maths and Physics shows universities what a logical thinking student you are. Universities love academic students, especially those with a science A-Level. 

Computer Science, Physics, and Maths will get you onto some pretty prestigious courses too. Students with these A-Levels tend to get onto courses like Astrophysics, Computer Science, and many more advanced professions.

2. Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science

This combination of A-Levels is similar to the last one, but Maths has been replaced by Chemistry. This can be useful for those of you who are interested in pursuing a science course in university. 

Universities like students that take sciences – they’re hard, but can also show that you’ve got a good aptitude for logic. This is great, as university needs students that can handle the heavy workload and difficult content. 

However, be careful – these A-Levels may be a good combo, but you’ll need to get good grades in them too. They’re hard, and only the most able of students will succeed in them.

3. Computer Science, Graphic Design, Art

In at number 3 is a combination a bit different from the previous two. This combination of A-Levels is good for students who are looking to go into graphic design, or even videogame animation. 

This combination of A-Levels mixes logical with the creative, to show that you can apply yourself to anything. Universities love to see this in students, as it means that they can stretch and succeed in whatever they put their mind to. 

Again, like I’ve said before, Computer Science is a facilitating subject. It’s one of the few that universities really look for, and combining it with creative subjects can lead to some interesting university courses.

4. History, Economics, Politics

History, Economics, and Politics – what a great trio of A-Levels to take. They are all closely related, and can lead to some interesting (but still very difficult) university courses. 

Universities like seeing these three A-Levels together, as the jobs they lead to are in high demand. Most universities also specialise in these sorts of courses, and so are always on the lookout for students with these A-Levels. 

However, this combination of A-Levels is quite narrow. You have to be sure you want to take these A-Levels, as even though they’ll help you get into university, you may find it harder to change what you want to do. 

5. Business Studies, Economics, Maths

This combination of A-Levels can be great for those of you who want to go into Accounting, Economics, or any other related university course. 

Business Studies and Economics are both great A-Levels to take to improve your knowledge of the working world. Maths is a facilitating subject, and will make it easier for you to get into those top universities. 

These three A-Levels combine literacy skills and maths skills, and both are highly valued by universities. Universities like to see students with a broad range of talents and subjects, and that’s what this combination will give you. 

Students that take these A-Levels generally go on to study some form of Economics or Business-related degree. And, if you take a look at this study by the Telegraph, you’ll see that Economics is actually the highest paying degree.

6. English Literature, History, Philosophy

A bit of an odd ball for number 6, we have English Literature, History, and Philosophy. Unlike subjects I’ve previously talked about, these three A-Levels require a lot of extended writing and retention of knowledge. 

Universities are starting more and more to look for students with extended writing skills. Extended writing is a huge part of university life, as most of the work you do is essays and evaluations. 

These three A-Levels will prepare you for that, and therefore make it easier to be accepted into university. As an added bonus, they all also tend to be quite interesting. 

One of the reasons these A-Levels work so well together is because they all require you to be able to form a balanced argument. This skill will carry you far in life, and not just for university. 

7. Business Studies, Accounting, Law

These three A-Levels might sound a bit boring, but they can actually help you out when applying for university. 

Business Studies, Accounting, and Law are in high demand from universities. They love to see students with these A-Levels, because they lead to the highest paying jobs (and also the best results). 

They work especially well together, as they all have certain topics that tie in with each other. Accounting and Business Studies go especially well together, and Law is a great accompanying subject. 

If you fancy switching out Law for a different A-Level (perhaps a facilitating one) then go for it. Just bear in mind it might change what university courses you can do, and potentially what university you go to. 

If you want more information about A-Level Business Studies, check out our article on How Hard Is A-Level Business Studies?

8. Geography, Environmental Science, Geology

These three A-Levels all come from the Environmental Studies group, and are good for getting you into specialised universities. 

Most universities will have certain courses that they specialise in, and that’s what these A-Levels are good for. The London School of Economics is even named after their specialised subject, but they still offer other courses too. 

The reason that Geography, Environmental Science, and Geology work so well together is because they are all very similar subjects. Because of their similarity, universities will be more likely to accept you on related courses. 

9. Spanish, French, English Language (Or Literature)

This combination of A-Levels is all about language skills. Just like the previous set of A-Levels, it’s quite a focused group, and you’ll need to show you can apply yourself to other things too (on your CV). 

Universities are looking out for students with these A-Levels, as translators are in high demand. With any of these languages, you could go into translating for important people, or even be part of the development of language technology. 

Universities tend to offer lots of different language courses – even old ones like Latin and Greek. This is because any language can be a facilitating subject – a language shows your applicability to situations and ability to learn copious amounts of content. 

10. Philosophy, Sociology, Psychology

These three A-Levels are part of the ‘Social Sciences’ group. They go well together because they’re all in the same group, and they all cover similar ideas and concepts. 

Taking these three A-Levels together will make each one easier, as content starts to tie in between them. Not only that, but universities will be impressed if you get good results, too. 

Students that take these A-Levels usually get onto similar university courses, like Philosophy or Sociology. Universities like these A-Levels because they lead to jobs in high demand – usually social jobs, that may never be replaced by automation. 

11. Law, Politics, Business Studies

This combination of A-Levels sounds like what you’d take at a business school, and you’d be right for thinking so. But, you can take them at college – why are universities so impressed by these A-Levels? 

Firstly, it takes a lot of hard work to succeed in these A-Levels. The content is not always very engaging, and it takes a strong-willed student to get through it, something that universities love. 

Secondly, these A-Levels lead to the highest paying degrees (and jobs). Universities look for students with these A-Levels, as it gives them the highest chance of good results. 

If you want more information about A-Level Business Studies, check out our article on How Hard Is A-Level Business Studies?

12. Chemistry, Biology, Maths

These subjects all sound fairly normal, and you take all of them in secondary school. They all go very well together however, and universities love to see this combination of A-Levels in a student. 

All three of these A-Levels are facilitating subjects. These A-levels are the ones universities specifically look for when considering students, and so you’ll find it easier to get in if you have them. 

Chemistry and Biology go well together because they’re both sciences, and have links between their content. Maths is there to show universities that you can take your understanding to the next level, and that you’re ready to move on to the level of university. 

If you want more information about A-Level Maths, check out our article on How Hard Is A-Level Maths Compared To GCSE Maths? Or if you want information on A-Level Chemistry, check out our article on What Is A-Level Chemistry Like?

13. Maths, Further Maths, Accounting

This combination of A-Levels is a sure-fire way of making your university application a lot more appealing. It may seem like a lot of numbers, but universities love this. 

A-Level Further Maths is regarded by universities as the hardest A-Level you can take. If you’ve got Further Maths on your application, they’ll prioritise you over other students who don’t. 

You can’t take Further Maths without normal Maths, and so that’s why they both feature in this combination. Accounting shows universities that you can apply your skills, and it can also open up a few more course opportunities for you. 

If you want more information about A-Level Maths, check out our article on How Hard Is A-Level Maths Compared To GCSE Maths? Or if you want information on A-Level Further Maths, check out our article on How Hard Is A-Level Further Maths?

14. Music, Music Technology, Any Science

This may seem like an odd combination of A-Levels to take, but just trust me on this one and read on. 

There are plenty of music universities you can attend, and a music A-Level will help you get there. Music is a talent and creative subject that universities are impressed by, as it shows you have creativity and initiative. 

Combining a science with Music/Music Technology broadens your skill set, which is something universities also like to see. If you’ve got both a creative subject and an academic subject like science, you’re going to be accepted into university much faster. 

You could also take a Social Science, too – like Psychology or Sociology. 

15. Religious Studies, Psychology, Sociology

Talking of Social Science, Psychology and Sociology are paired with Religious Studies at number 15. This combination of A-Levels takes your balanced argument and extended writing skills to the next level, and universities will love that. 

These three A-Levels are also not easy to succeed in, either. You have to have a creative mind, but also be academically skilled enough to convey your point. 

Universities realise this and are more likely to accept you because of it. If you want an easier path into university that includes a bit of both creativity and academic skill, these A-Levels are the way to go. 

16. Photography, Art, Sociology

Photography, Art, and Sociology go hand in hand in a great university application. They all tie in with each other, and Sociology can be used to inspire your Art and Photography, making college life easier. 

Universities know the sheer amount of work you have to do for both Photography and Art, and take this into consideration. They also know the difficulty of Sociology and what kind of student you need to be to succeed in it – the kind of student they want studying with them. 

Sociology may not be a facilitating subject, but it is a social science. Just bear in mind that Photography and Art can be paired with pretty much any other academic subject, but especially the sciences. 

17. Archaeology, Geography, History

Last on this list is Archaeology, Geography, and History. All three of these A-Levels link in content, and are also super interesting, too. 

Universities that are looking for these A-Levels most likely specialise in either Archaeology or History. If you take these A-Levels, you need to be sure that that’s the career path you want to pursue. 

Universities love this combination of A-Levels especially, as it shows that a student can work and succeed in creative, academic, and historical context. 

It also shows that you can apply your knowledge to real-situations, something that many high-level students can’t do. Universities know this, and therefore look for students with this combination of A-Levels.

If you’re passionate about Business / Economics, I think a great A-Level combination would be: A-Level Maths, A-Level Economics and A-Level Business. Don’t worry about the fact that they are similar, they go hand in hand. If you are taking a fourth A-Level, I would look into taking A-Level Further Maths, as some universities (LSE is one of them) like to see an additional Further Maths A-Level. As for English Language, it’s certainly not required, however, it could help you with writing techniques for both A-Level Business and Economics. That being said, I do not recommend picking A-Level English Language… Read more »

Sorry the delay Sam. I would say that Maths, Physics and Business is a better combination than the original one with Geography – especially if he intends to go into engineering. I also think that if he wasn’t massively keen on business, A-Level Further Maths would be the absolute best subject to take. However, if it stays as Maths, Physics and Business, the combination will set him up well for Engineering:)

In my opinion, Business, Economics and Maths is a great combination and there is no need to add a humanity to it. If you are wanting to go for a subject that is a bit different, perhaps you could pick something such as A-Level English Language, as the writing skills you learn can go a long way.

Hey simba,
The best jobs you can get from business, economics, and maths are usually things to do with money. Accounting could be a potential route for you, as could being an economist. The great thing about maths is that it’s completely versatile, so you’d be free to do most any job you wanted!

Great to hear that he did so well at GCSE Maths! Shame about him struggling with the A-Level. The short answer is that if he wants to pursue Computer Science and Physics, A-Level Maths is (unfortunately) very important. Universities regard A-Level Maths highly and they always look for it in either Physics or Computer Science applicants. In my opinion, I think he shouldn’t drop A-Level Maths and that he should fight through it. Besides, if he got an 8 in GCSE Maths, he is more than capable of getting a good grade in the A-Level. Hope this helped. If you… Read more »

Well, my first two suggestions were going to be A-Level Maths or A-Level Accountancy… However, if you really don’t want to take those, you’re going to have to go for one that doesn’t really “fit in” with the other ones.

It could really be anything, my top three (after Maths and Accountancy) would be: A-Level Politics, A-Level Law or A-Level English Language. However, I would advise you to reconsider, as A-Level Maths does go very well with A-Level Economics.

A-Level Art and A-Level French are a bit more specific, and if your daughter wants to pursue those subjects there will be less options available to her.

For more information on what universities will want from you, you can look up their requirements for entry on their websites.

Two sciences and a social science? That’s a recipe for success, and is sure to look great no matter what you do after college.

Business Studies and Law go great together, and look really good if you’re applying to university. Media studies is a bit of an oddball, but is still a great A-Level to take.

I took History, Chemistry and Biology however now that I’ve started A levels I’m not sure whether I should drop history for maths or physics since I heard they are good for a science degree in unis, I’m not a big fan of maths ( I got a 6 in GCSE) but I’m keen to do it if it means I can get into a good uni and take science???

Thinking about Biology, Chemistry and Economics. Cannot face doing Maths or physics. Like the idea of psychology instead of Economics but heard not always appreciated by some Universities.

I personally don’t think so. It’s not strictly necessary to take Maths with Computer Science, but it is essential for a degree in the field of Computer Science.
