Of course, this is not an exhaustive list, and Raffles Press is not a conclusive resource. Before deciding what subjects to take in JC, you may also wish to find out the subject prerequisites of university courses you may be interested in, and consult your seniors or a career-guidance counsellor for more advice tailored to your interests and needs. 

Ultimately, subject combinations constitute but a small part of your JC experience. Regardless of whether you take the well-trodden path or the road less taken, I am sure JC will still be a memorable, enriching and fulfilling experience for you.
